The United States is primed for a rebellion. So argues Chris Hedges in his new book, Wages of Rebellion, in which the Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist and polemicist examines revolts from 1700s to the ending of apartheid in South Africa, as well as the “sublime madness” that drives the people at the centre of such rebellions. Why is America next? He recently spoke with the National Post’s Ishmael Daro about what he sees as a pot about to boil over.

I agree it is on the edge of rebellion.
The working poor are tired of being treat like crap while providing the services everyone takes for granted that makes this country one of the better places to live in.
Millions of others are tired of being oppressed through the penal system and experiencing the totally corrupt judicial system aka the courts.
The list goes on...
To be honest, it wouldn't bother me. Our political system is a cancer, our legal system is terminally corrupted, our economy hopeless rigged. And the worst part? The American people. The glorification of ignorance, decadence, arrogance. Pointless bigotries and divisions, paranoia and fear of illusionary enemies, self-righteousness, intolerance. A neurotic culture too far gone to see just how bad it truly is.
Unfortunately, the average American has absolutely no idea as to what Income Inequality is.
