Social & Political Thought

"Just as a new oppressive relation emerged when Europe expanded westward (and subsequently, eastward),so, too, are new oppressive relations emerging as the New West goes global. Is it racism? Classism? Sexism? In my view, it is none of these uniquely, but instead a pervasive ethos against humanistic solutions to any of them. In short, it is the ethos of counterrevolution and anti-Utopia."
