Yeah -- except for that time back in 2008 when he said atheists were as dangerous as Christian fundamentalists. Remember?
But what the hell -- Everybody blows their wheels every now and again. I mean he earned a Master of Divinity from Harvard Divinity School so we know he spent a lot of time, and allocated a lot of head space, to the study of gibberish. It was only natural some of that lunacy leaked out. But after The Big Blowout I guess he called the mental health department of Triple A and got back on the road again.
His latest essay, We're Losing the Last Shreds of Legal Rights to Protect Ourselves from Oligarchy,
is another example of great Chris Hedges writing. But he consistently has a problem with using the correct tenses of verbs. He insists on using the present or future tense when he should be using the past tense.
We’re not losing … we’ve lost.
