It's long, but it's very much worth the watch, and I strongly advise you to watch the entire video. Mr. Hedges, for those of you who don't know, is an American Journalist who was raised in a Christian (Pentecostal) home and his father was the Pastor of their church. He went on to attend Colgate University and then Harvard Divinity School.
The bulk of his works include political, economic, and social commentary, as well as covering the "War on Terror" over in the Middle East. He's written a series of great novels, most notable of which are:
War Is a Force That Gives Us Meaning
Losing Moses on the Freeway: The Ten Commandments in America & American Fascists: The Christian Right and the War on America
