Musician Roger Waters Takes The United States to Task

Roger Waters, formerly of Pink Floyd, discusses education in the United States and the world view that sets the US apart from "others".

His album Amused to Death is described as "An unblinking look at an entertainment-obsessed society, Amused to Death addresses issues that have only grown in complexity and urgency over the past two decades. In 2015, television is just one option in an endless array of distractions available to us anytime, anywhere, courtesy of our laptops, tablets and smartphones. With eyes glued to our screens, the dilemmas and injustices of the real world can easily recede from view."
