Writers worth knowing: Chris Hedges

Really great 30 minutes radio interview with Chris Hedgesย who has been my journalistic hero for quite some time now. Learn about his past and experiences that led to his current worldview of humanity in crisis. chris-hedgesOnce you start the journey to sustainability you will experience many stop-overs on just about every issue on the planet – from environmentalism, corporatism, politics, economy, philosophy, humanism, religion, and last but not least, an evaluation of personal beliefs. True sustainability cannot be “part” of all the other beliefs we hold – it has to encompass the whole damn thing. It means the planet’s ability to sustain life has to come before our own needs, and certainly before money. Chris Hedges is one of the few prolific journalists who is not afraid to speak the message “Let’s change or die“. He attacks the problem of injustice from multiple angles, and while most of his writing can be depressing and downright frightening, I always learn something new about what rings dangerously close to “the truth”. In this day and and age, that is rare indeed.

Do you have any favorite articles or books of Hedges’? Mine is Growth is the Problem. You can find his weekly column at Truthdig.com.
