This interview is pretty long but if you break it up piecemeal its easily digesteble.

If I had to choose one person who could define what it means to be a liberal it would be Hedges. Since we're about the same age we tend to have the same perspective on many things.

Yes, i watched this CSpan interview a while back, twice in fact. It's a great interview, and well worth watching. I remember a guy calling in and asking, something like, what can an older dispensable man do to see that his indispensable granddaughter grows up in a better world? mr. Hedge's answer was to put your body on the line in performing an act of civil disobedience. I took that to heart.

So you are pretty involved in Occupy? Are you loyal to the Democratic party?
