“A populace that can no longer find the words to articulate what is happening to it is cut off from rational discourse.”

A short film based on the book “The Death of the Liberal Class” written by cultural critic and foreign correspondent, Chris Hedges, which introduces an interesting argument about how corporations influence political decision making institutions and all aspects of public sphere in favour of corporate profit gaining. Concentrating more on the cultural impacts of these developments on the way people think, organise, behave in current societies, the book and video complement well other arguments written about the topic before.

However, how can you represent such idea convincingly when you sell your book through one of the company you just trashed and named the cause of the death for the whole Planet in a 50 minute-long short film. Selling the book on AMAZON.com?! It should be available online for free!  

Inspirational interview with online activist, one of the founders of Avaaz.org, Ricken Patel.

Yes, we do need organisations being able to represent the voice of public in political decision-making process!
