In honor of Chris Hedges comments about America as the Pequod: Great Books: MOBY DICK, Part One

It is good to take a look back at the novel. The great American novel Moby Dick. Success and failure. The coming together of races. This book had it all.


All the parts are here: http://laborspains.blogspot.com/2012/12/in-honor-of-chris-hedges-comments-about.html

1. Thank you. I really enjoyed the videos even though I still

find the story depressing and without much hope. In that light, I wonder if Hedges sees our present situation equally so.

Junot Diaz in an interview with Bill Moyers http://billmoyers.com/episode/full-show-rewriting-the-story-of-america/

3. This is what I was referring to

Hedges is part of this section. He mentions the Pequod at the end of the interview.
