Forever wars

“In the face of rising political violence in the US, the Republicans and Democrats have overseen a vast expansion of the US military. For over 30 years, the United States has been continuously at war. Many people, including Ikeguchi, have lived their entire lives with the US government at war. This level of official violence, coupled with declining living standards, healthcare and education, carried out over the course of an entire generation, cannot but have had a devastating impact on the consciousness of countless individuals.” —
