Why Public Intellectuals Are Endangered

With Chris Hedges and Cornel West unmasking the face of Empire, is it any wonder why the mainstream media marginalizes them? Truth is an offense in today’s political climate. Or in the words of George Orwell, “During the times of universal deceit, telling the truth becomes a revolutionary act.” We are quietly being programmed to shut our mouths, stay tunnel-visioned & zombified when it comes to understanding and engaging with our socio-political realities. Any type of critical engagement is likely to get labeled as “terroristic”, “un-American”, “socialist/communist”, “siding with the enemy”. Just close your eyes, plug your ears, blindfold your eyes and sip the slow-poisoning Kool-aid like a true patriot! It’s the American Way. As an illustration, look at how people are acting at Trump rallies and note the poisoning taking place across the land. Almost looks like some kind of cult-like demonic possession at some of these rallies.

I encourage everyone to read the works of Chris Hedges and Cornel West to understand what is happening right before our very eyes.
