The ridiculous story of the bloody and violent process of “globalization” and the empires that birthed our modern world.
Last week, I published an essay called ‘How it Feels to be a Young American in 2014.’ It ended up being the most controversial and heavily discussed piece that has ever appeared on this website. In it, I attempted to articulate the complex and various ways in which the sociocultural structures of the United States tend to do physical (death, disease, imprisonment, etc.) and psychological (cyclic feelings of inadequacy, guilt, anxiety, etc.) violence to the general public.
