Synopsis

Les institutions sociales et politiques s’écroulent aux États-Unis comme ailleurs, et les élites, tant de gauche que de droite, ne suscitent plus au sein des peuples qu’un ressentiment dont l’intensité va grandissant. Cette colère se déchaîne et, de partout, surgissent des charlatans prêts à la canaliser pour protéger les élites au pouvoir. Les signes ne trompent pas : l’âge des démagogues est arrivé.

Dans cette série d’entretiens, Chris Hedges explique l’ascension politique d’un personnage aussi trouble que Donald Trump, dénonçant au passage les démocrates, qu’il juge responsables de la déréliction politique qui a fait perdre la tête à l’Amérique. Une analyse lucide du néolibéralisme totalitaire et de la montée des extrémismes partout dans le monde, et qui incite, en fin de compte, à la rébellion.
