472px-Leo_PanitchLUMPENPROLETARIATDr. Leo Panitch is a bloke we’ve heard a number of times on free speech radio, particularly on Doug Henwood‘s weekly radio show, Behind the News.  Here, he speaks with another notable thinker on the Left, Chris Hedges.  They discuss Panitch’s book, The Making of Global Capitalism: The Political Economy of American Empire (2012), in which Panitch quotes Harold Innis:

“American imperialism has been made plausible and attractive, in part, by the insistence that it is not imperialistic.”
