Tour of Duty: Coming Back Into the Real World Once the War is Won, or Lost

War is a devastating thing. It makes people do silly things. The soldiers who fight for governments generally have a pretty hard time coming back to the normality of life from the brutality of war. PTSD for example, or Post-Traumatic Stress Disorder, is one thing to consider.

The Zombie as Barometer of Capitalist Anxiety

The Zombie as Barometer of Capitalist Anxiety

The modern incarnation of the zombie, as seen strewn across pop culture horror novels and films in ever-increasing numbers, is easily recognized and radically different from its historical roots; any member of our modern Western culture can spot the gray, often rotting flesh, the black eyes, the dishevelled appearance, the shuffling gait, the wretched moaning, and, of course, the bloody mouths flecked with fresh flesh and detritus.

Our Era's Racism

Our Era's Racism

Last week I heard this piece on public radio titled, "Are Candidates' Spouses Off-limits?", and I just felt so disgusted. Skip ahead to the 40% mark, and you'll hear what I'm referring to.

Our forefathers outlined our “inalienable rights” to “life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness” in the Declaration of Independence, and had our rights and freedoms laid-out as best they could in our Constitution, including the Bill of Rights. The Declaration of Independence also states that “All men are created equal.”

A Critical Look At Our Way Of Life

The law of the wild is “survival of the fittest”. This rule applies to all of Natures creatures, even us. In our civilization, the “fittest” are those with the most money, because money is associated with security and power. This is regardless of their true ability and ingenuity.
