FRIDAY NOVEMBER 17, 2017 | 12:15 PM

“If hope becomes something that you express through illusion, then it’s not hope, it’s fantasy.” – Chris Hedge, Journalist, Author, Activist

Pulitzer-prize winning journalist, author, and activist, Chris Hedges, discusses modern day consumerism, totalitarian corporate power and living in a culture dominated by pervasive illusion. American Psychosis is the first short documentary in a series of films that highlight a variety of issues under the umbrella of totalitarian capitalism and totalitarian corporate power. The intent of this series is to activate US citizens to fight against the corporate powers that are privatizing basic human rights, destroying the environment and oppressing the people.
