In Part 1 of a two-part interview on teleSUR’s “Days of Revolt,” Chris Hedges and Green Party presidential candidate Jill Stein explore the problems plaguing American politics, including the essential dysfunction of a two-party system dominated by corporate interests, the staged hypocrisy of the presidential debates and the lack of difference between Republicans and Democrats.

“In terms of war, the economy, exporting our jobs, attacking unions and workers, privatizing our school system, our commons, an energy system that basically puts fossil fuels and nuclear above all else, turning our food system into a playground for corporate industrial agriculture and GMOs and so on, you know, it’s fundamentally the things that are destroying civilization, and the prospects of life on the planet, they’re really shared between those two parties,” Stein explains.
