More Alyona talking with Chris Hedges on the global trainwreck of unfettered capitalism

maximizing profits in a marketplace that recognizes no constraints...
That's what our guest tonight argues in his latest book, by travelling to, and documenting life and the destruction of it in so called, "sacrifice zones". This includes the Pine Ridge Reservation in South Dakota; the city of Camden, N.J.; the now leveled mountains of West Virginia; and the migrant-worker camps that resemble modern day slavery of southwest Florida. So why are they sacrifice zones? Because both human beings and the natural world have been used and then discarded to maximize earnings in a marketplace that rules without constraints. They're perhaps the most shocking and in your face examples, but should they be used as a warning sign as to where the rest of the country, and the world are headed? Alyona discusses his new book "Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt" with Chris Hedges Pulitzer Prize-winning reporter and Senior Fellow at the Nation Institute.

consider this an antidote to the mindless 4th of july celebrations of an america that doesn't exist...
