American Fascists: the Hour interview with Chris Hedges

George Stroumboulopoulos, host of CBC’s The Hour (he never introduces himself as “your host”, always, endearingly, as “your boyfriend”) interviews Chris Hedges, author of American Fascists:

Hedges makes the interesting and useful point that the reason Canada doesn’t have a fundie-dominionist problem is because we still have some semblance of a social safety net. He observes that fascism takes hold when there is prolonged instability and insecurity in a country. His only fault, as far as I can see, is that he doesn’t see it is already happening in the United States.
