As usual Chris Hedges brings up several other great issues in the interview.

Info from the video - "We're continuing our discussion of wanting to take the influence of money out of politics with Author and Truthout columnist Chris Hedges. Overturning Citizens United is just one step, but for those that have been monitoring the Occupy movement for over the last four months, they know that it's about much more. But where does public opinion stand on Occupy now that the majority of the camps have been evicted? Now that we've seen in some cities, violence come into play, in what's meant to be a peaceful movement. Hedges pin points the black bloc anarchists, and calls them the cancer within Occupy. And says that if their confrontational tactics begin to shape public opinion, and allow local governments to justify draconian forms of control."
