The USA is transforming from a secular democracy into a Christian fundamentalist state. On the surface the demagogues of this development use all the trappings of religion, but at the heart of their doctrines lie the core tenets of fascism. Working hand in hand with the false religious prophets are the big corporations, especially the arms industry, who now control American politics. To discuss this political trend Amy Goodman of DemocracyNow! talks to Chris Hedges (formerly of the New York Times) about his new book „American Fascists“.
