Chris Hedges says it all

Christopher Lynn Hedges is an American Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist, and war correspondent specializing in American and Middle Easter politics and societies. His most recent book, written with the cartoonist Joe Sacco, is Days of Destruction, Days of Revolt (2012). The book shows the consequences of unregulated capitalism by reporting from "sacrifice zones", the poorest pockets of the United States such as Camden New Jersey and the the coal fields of southern West Virginia "that have been offered up for exploitation in the name of profit".
