Chris Hedges is a columnist, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, a New York Times best-selling author, a professor in the college degree program offered to New Jersey state prisoners by Rutgers University, and an ordained Presbyterian minister. He has written 12 books, including “War Is a Force That Gives Us Meaning” (2003) was a finalist for the National Book Critics Circle Award.  His other notable books include: “Empire of Illusion: The End of Literacy and the Triumph of Spectacle” (2009), and his latest book is “America: The Farewell Tour” (2018).  He also hosts the show, “On Contact,” on RT America.

Hedges spent nearly two decades as a foreign correspondent in Central America, the Middle East, Africa and the Balkans.  Much of that work was for the New York Times, where he stood up to the corporate media by resigning after receiving a formal reprimand from the newspaper for publicly denouncing the George W. Bush administration’s invasion of Iraq.  Hedges holds a B.A. in English literature from Colgate University and a Master of Divinity degree from Harvard University.

The outbreak of the coronavirus in the United States has presented a unique catastrophe that is targeting members of the American military as much as the average citizen.  Here, we discuss how the military is responding, how examples of real leadership are being quashed by the national security state in the form of one Navy aircraft carrier captain, and how individuals can protect themselves and their loved ones through this time in U.S. history.

Danny roundup – November 2018

I’ve decided to start doing a monthly roundup of Danny’s writing pieces.  It will help give a better single spot to check for specific articles.

Start with Danny’s American History for TruthDiggers series, an ongoing project examining US history from a more detailed and history based perspective.  The most recent addition (part 21) discussed the lost history of World War I and how its peace didn’t last, despite the overwhelming horror of the conflict.
