Summary
America, says Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter Chris Hedges, is 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, hate, and plagues of suicides are the physical 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. All these ills presage a frightening reconfiguration of the nation and the planet
Summary
The Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author of <I>War Is a Force That Gives Us Meaning</I> presents a controversial examination of today's America that connects unemployment, deindustrialization and dwindling opportunities to today's rise in depression, hate and drug abuse
