Hedges's stunning speech from 2013. Melville's novel Moby Dick is a metaphor for the US today.

The relentless pursuit of an insane goal: that's Melvile's Captain Ahab on the ship Pequod, and that's corporate capitalism today. On the Pequod, the pursuit yielded repression and then destruction of ship and crew. That's where the world today is heading. Only mutiny by the crew could have saved the Pequod, and only nonviolent rebellion by citizens can save the U.S. and the planet's ecosystem.
I have condensed Hedges' talk substantially. He delivered it (under a different title) at Moravian College on October 22, 2013. A video of the complete talk is available on YouTube.

"New World Notes" is produced under the auspices (Latin for "Freedom of Information Act") of WWUH-FM, a community service of that beacon of light in darkest Connecticut, the University of Hartford.
