America: The Farewell Tour

SEE EVENT DETAILS
Chris Hedges, Pulitzer Prize–winning Journalist, Author, America: The Farewell Tour 

Monday Night Philosophy examines America in crisis, convulsed by an array of pathologies that have arisen out of profound hopelessness, a bitter despair and a civil society that has ceased to function. The opioid crisis, the retreat into gambling to cope with economic distress, the pornification of culture, the rise of magical thinking, the celebration of sadism and hate, and a plague of suicides are the manifestations of a society that is being ravaged by corporate pillage and a failed democracy. As our society unravels, we also face global upheaval caused by catastrophic climate change. Although Donald Trump rode this disenchantment to power, Hedges argues that neither political party addresses the systemic problem. Capturing a poignant cry reported from communities across the country, Hedges seeks to jolt us out of our complacency while there is still time.
