This is a follow-up to my entry from earlier today. In a revision of that entry, I added a link to this hour-plus video of Chris Hedges speaking in Vancouver BC just over a week ago. About 20 minutes into the speech, Hedges connects our alleged president's puppeteer Steve Bannon with the generational theory of William Strauss and Neil Howe, co-authors of The Fourth Turning: An American Prophecy.
Hedges paints Strauss and Howe as guilty by association with Bannon's alt-right ideology. He refers to them as "pseudo-intellectuals" playing the same role as propagandists and apologists for the Third Reich. Having read The Fourth Turning twice, I must say that I find this depiction terribly unfair. And, I am happy to report, I am not alone in thinking so.
