Excerpt:

“theory that our current system is informed by a “machinery of social and civil death” that chills “any vestige of a robust democracy.”

This week on Moyers & Company, Giroux explains that such a machine turns “people who are basically so caught up with surviving that they become like the walking dead – they lose their sense of agency, they lose their homes, they lose their jobs.””

And of course, now with severe climate collapse, when there is so much as a single cloud in the sky, members of the 99% don’t even know if they will have a housing still standing when they go home at the end of the day. In their pursuit of profit, the 1% has rendered a basic necessity of the masses' lives - shelter - both tenous and fleeting.
