Chris Hedges on The Wages of Rebellion
In this talk Chris Hedges covers a few things: contentious intersections of conservative Christianity and sexual orientation, supporting marginalized voices, the myth of “neutrality” when considering social justice, the criminal injustice system, war, hope, and more.
Ultimately he talks about power, the costs that come with going against the grain, and the need to resist anyway.
“Morality isn’t taught finely it’s always, shown. In a closed, safe environment a lot of people can talk a lot. It’s when you step out of that environment and have the courage to stand for something that it has that kind of seismic impact on everyone around you.”
