'Obey': Film Based on Chris Hedges' 'Death of the Liberal Class'





Published on Feb 24, 2013

British filmmaker Temujin Doran has released a new movie that is based on the book "The Death of the Liberal Class" by Truthdig columnist Chris Hedges. The film, titled "Obey," explores the rise of the corporate state and the future of obedience in a world filled with unfettered capitalism, worsening inequality and environmental changes.

Warning: Viewers may find some of the clips in the film disturbing.

4. SADLY, I AGREE WITH HEDGES & DORAN, AND THE FUTURE IS DAUNTING

Electoral politics is secondary to me to actual issues such as Citizens United, Global Climate Change and enforcement of existing legislation such as say, bank fraud.
