Chris Hedges: Detention of David Miranda on Terrorism Charges Amounts to the “Criminalization of Journalism”

What have we allowed our nation states to become? Places where we criminalize peaceful protest and honest journalism, places where wellbeing of economy, of the state and of people is redefined as the health and wealth of corporates, where democracy itself has given way to corporatocracy.. these are the places that we have allowed our nation states to become. The moral imperative facing all of us, is to urgently reclaim the meaning of wealth and wellbeing, to take back freedom and democracy , and to build a new place of inclusive wellbeing from the ground up. The time is urgent and it is right now.
