    Throughout history, the human species have not always been able to read or write. One thing humans have always understood are pictures. The cavemen painted on walls in order to document and tell the stories of their lives. In the more modern era, books, especially for children, are filled with pictures in order to help convey the ideas of the writer to all who read his books. This idea of pictures to help support book is shown very well in Chris Hedges and Joe Sacco’s book Days of Destruction Days of Revolt. Sacco, the one in charge of the illustration, does a fantastic job of presenting visuals to the story and helping show the true emotion of the oral history of the book. First of all, Sacco uses his illustration to tell the oral part of…

    Chris Hedges' states in his introduction, "we in the industrial world bear responsibility for the world's genocides because we had the power to intervene and did not.

    In “Empire of Illusion” by Chris Hedges, Hedges states that “the most essential skill...is artifice.” The dictionary definition of artifice can be paraphrased as using tricks to deceive others, someone who is clever or cunning; though I wouldn’t use clever as a description of someone who is artifice.

While Hedges presents some great points in his essay, I feel that because of his over-generalization of America, he has completely neglected those individuals who are not in a trance.There are some individuals who are educated enough to detach themselves from what they are exposed to in the media. First, there are individuals who use the media to reveal the injustices in their society.There are those who use the media to their advantage. For example, individuals such as Michael Moore, has…

    Money has lowered the value of honesty. It no longer is necessary to tell truth in order to sell a product. It would cost less to name a product amazing then to actually create an amazing product. In Empire of Illusion, by Chris Hedges, goes more in depth of how lying is becoming more profitable. This is an important topic because people will always be on edge on what they are buying and what they hearing. This is an important topic because people will always be on edge on what they are…

    propaganda and brainwashing the public. This should never be done anywhere due to how destructive it can be to a population. Places like North Korea will very likely never be fixed because of how effective and destructive propaganda is. I agree with Chris Hedges and his argument. Even though people could argue that it is better, but the population will be under control and won’t know that what they are in is not normal, but this isn't any way for a human to live. Political leaders are usually…
