Jared Yates Sexton is the guest on this very special July 4 Independence Day episode of The Chauncey DeVega Show and The Truth Report.

Jared Yates Sexton is the author of several books including “The People Are Going to Rise Like the Waters Upon Your Shore: A Story of American Rage” and “American Rule: How a Nation Conquered the World But Failed Its People”.

In this wide-ranging conversation Jared and Chauncey ponder why so many rank-and-file Americans as well as the country’s “elites” are in denial about the ongoing and worsening crises that may be the end of the country as they know it.

They also highlight how America is beset by a culture of death and destruction and apocalypse as shown by gangster capitalism, Christian fascism and End Times fantasies, and the Trump-led Republican Party and fascist movement which tried to nullify democracy on Jan 6 – and are continuing to do so.

Jared and Chauncey DeVega reflect on how they have navigated the emotionally challenging task(s) of documenting the ongoing and escalating disaster that is the Age of Trump and ascendant fascism and an American democracy that is on life support.
