Interview with Chris Hedges, author of "The World As It Is: Dispatches on the Myth of Human Progress", UPDATED and with NEW LINKs (9/30/11 below) , conducted by Scott Harris

In the months after the near collapse of the U.S. financial and banking system in 2008 that triggered the most serious global economic meltdown since the Great Depression, America has witnessed an uneasy silence suggesting either trauma or stunned acquiescence among the general populace. While polls find that the population at large blames the recklessness of wealthy bankers and speculators for record unemployment and home foreclosures, the only real anger expressed in the streets in recent years has come from corporate-backed Tea Party activists bent on defunding social safety net programs while labeling President Obama a Muslim-socialist, and attacking unions.  Story continues

juvenile

For decades of criminal justice practice in the U.S., juveniles were considered to have a special status, different from adult offenders, by virtue of their age and higher likelihood of rehabilitation. The criminal justice system put in place a process to insulate young people from the negative consequences of being thrown in with adult prisoners and being branded a “criminal.” Prosecutors followed procedures that allowed the conviction of young offenders to remain confidential matters.  Story continues
