Documentary “OBEY” … your corporate masters.

This documentary film “OBEY” is based on the book Death of the Liberal Class by Pulitzer Prize winning journalist, Chris Hedges.

According to Chris Hedges, liberal institutions are to blame for the downward spiral of the American political system. In his Big Thinkinglecture at Congress 2012, he argues that the liberal class—the press, universities, liberal religious institutions, labour unions and the Democratic Party—have forsaken their core values and sold out to corporate interests.
 

 
The documentary “OBEY” examines the rise of the Corporate State and discusses the future of obedience in a world of crony capitalism, globalization, increasing inequality, the police state, and environmental change.
 


 
 
Chris Hedges: Obama is a “Poster Child for the Death of the Liberal Class”
Source:   Democracy Now!

The compromise tax-cut deal that President Obama signed into law on Friday has angered many of his supporters. In his new book, Death of the Liberal Class, Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and author Chris Hedges argues that the failure of President Obama to represent the interests of his supporters is just another example of a quickly dying liberal class. In the book, Hedges explains how the five pillars of the liberal class — the press, universities, unions, liberal churches and the Democratic Party — have become corrupt.
