A collection of distinguished voices on the left—journalists, activists and organizers, including Truthdig columnist Chris Hedges—sued the Obama administration over the 2012 National Defense Authorization Act. In interviews that occurred during or after the March court hearing, they spoke to the deep, grim causes of the deterioration of Western societies.

At that hearing, a federal judge struck down a NDAA provision that gave the U.S. military the authority to indefinitely detain American citizens without trial or charge. Plaintiffs Tangerine Bolen of RevolutionTruth, Alexa O’Brien of US Day of Rage, and Kai Wargalla of Occupy London join Hedges in the video below.
