In a Nutshell

Journalist Chris Hedges investigates activists and political movements in the U.S. to identify the factors that lead to revolutions, what drives people to rebel against the status quo, and how activism can successfully change society.

Favorite Quote

We live in a revolutionary moment ... A tiny global oligarchy has amassed obscene wealth, while the engine of unfettered corporate capitalism plunders resources; exploits cheap, unorganized labor; and creates pliable, corrupt governments.

Chris Hedges


The U.S. is characterized by disillusionment; we lose trust in the government with each crisis, from the 2008 financial crisis to whistleblower allegations of mass surveillance in the 2010s.

As author and journalist Chris Hedges sees it, we are at the tipping point of revolution.

Hedges previously worked as a foreign correspondent during conflicts in Central America, Eastern Europe, and North Africa.

In Wages of Rebellion, Hedges analyzes the factors that lead people to rebel and the tactics that are most successful in achieving societal change.

While we can't predict the success of a revolution, Hedges suggests the efforts of activists can inspire us all to take action and work together for a better future.
