“This resistance must also be accompanied by an alternative vision of a
socialist, anti-capitalist society. Because the enemy in the end is not
Trump or Bannon—it is corporate power,” Hedges says. “And if we do not
stop corporate power, we will never dismantle fascism’s seduction of the
white working class and unemployed.”
“Hope comes from the
numerous protests that have been mounted in the streets, in town halls,”
he continues. “We must engage in these battles on a local and on a
national level ... we will have to build new radical movements and most
importantly, new parallel institutions that challenge the hegemony of
corporate power. It will not be easy; it will take time.”
