Death of the Liberal Class

Chris Hedges

About the Program

Chris Hedges, fellow at the Nation Institute, argues that America's liberal class has collapsed and with it the citizenry's protection against what the author deems, the "corporate state."  Mr. Hedges contends that the liberal class, which includes universities, labor movements, the press, the Democratic Party, and liberal religious groups, has been gradually corrupted by corporate entities.  He believes that without the existence of a liberal class there will no longer be checks and balances against corporate interests.  Chris Hedges discusses his book at Powell's Books in Portland, Oregon.
