Through The Distortion, Flickerings of Illumination

As these examples show, our overseas mass killers, the military, provide the U.S. persona with an edgy chaos that's psychopathically hip in a Training Day meets Apocalypse Now sort of way.

It also means confronting all the nation's institutions in order to root out white supremacy's hidden presence within them.
