Truthdig is pleased to offer you the DVD of an original groundbreaking talk by Chris Hedges:

The Myth of Human Progress and the Collapse of Complex Societies

Erik Mauer (CC BY 2.0)

Included in the DVD is a conversation between Truthdig columnists Chris Hedges and Robert Scheer, and a Q & A with the audience.

On Oct. 13, 2013, Chris Hedges held an exclusive talk about the myth of human progress, the unexamined belief in the ability of our industrial and technological society to save us from collapse. In this video of the event, Hedges examines this myth and others that have left us collectively self-deluded. He looks at effective forms of resistance and rebellion in an age of totalitarian capitalism and at ways to keep our lives whole and sane as we begin to face the great unraveling. The DVD also includes a conversation with Truthdig Editor-in-chief Robert Scheer, and a Q & A with the audience.
