Summary
In the footsteps of his bestselling Empire of Illusion, America: The Farewell Tour is a provocative examination of a nation in crisis. In it, Pulitzer Prize-winner Chris Hedges argues that unemployment, deindustrialization, and a bitter hopelessness have allowed an array of pathologies to rise. The opioid crisis, the retreat into gambling to cope with economic distress, the pornification of culture, the rise of magical thinking, the celebration of sadism, hate, and plagues of suicides are the physical manifestations of a society that is being ravaged by corporate pillage and a failed democracy. As our society unravels, we also face global upheaval caused by catastrophic climate change. All these ills presage a frightening reconfiguration of the nation and the planet. Donald Trump rode this disenchantment to power. In America: The Farewell Tour, Hedges argues that neither political party, now captured by corporate power, addresses the systemic problem. Until our corporate coup d'état is reversed, these diseases will grow and ravage the country. A poignant cry reported from communities across North America, Chris Hedges seeks to jolt us out of our complacency while there is still time
