The End of Hope

The End of Hope

by Sandala on September 1, 2018

America, says Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Chris Hedges in his new book America: The Farewell Tour, is convulsed by an array of pathologies—the opioid crisis, pervasive economic distress, our pornified culture, a plague of suicides, and more—that have arisen out of profound hopelessness, a bitter despair, and a civil society that has ceased to function.

In the face of such devastation, what remains of hope? And, as human beings, do we possess the capacity within ourselves to transcend our circumstances?

Join Renovatio for what promises to be  a thought-provoking conversation with Chris HedgesZaid Shakir, and Hamza Yusuf about hope, despair, and the future of our nation.
