From the Arab Spring to the Occupy Movement, popular uprisings are in the air. Tonight, following up on his Saturday night speech at Kshama Sawant's Town Hall reelection rally, Pulitzer Prize winner reporter and writer Chris Hedges will ask the big question: Are we, as a people, driven to the brink of income inequality, ready to spark the next rebellion?
