State Sponsored Violence & The State in general

| 1 Comment

I came across these articles & I think it relates nicely to a variety of forms of state sponsored terror that Chomsky discussed. Moreover, it is hard to imagine an exsistence outside the reliance on the State, it is possible, but what it will look like is ever changing. The State rarely works for those who really represent the people and have attempted to isolate and divide us through various tactics including racial divison & control over those deemed "the other".
Concrete examples in these articles:

Although the test is over, I thought these were good examples/different examples of what a variety of our readings discussed.
