In this wide-ranging interview, Pulitzer Prize winning journalist Christopher Hedges talks with me about class war, nonviolence, The Great Gatsby, and about the lost art of satire.

John Boehner, Ted Cruz & Rand Paul are geniuses, true patriots & founding fathers. (What did George Washington ever do that was so great anyway?) Slow down the government to prove how slow the government is! Love it!
