Bad Subjects #91: Faith
In what do you have faith? Do you have faith in Americans’ ability to elect a new President who won’t bring us to the brink of nuclear war with one misguided late-night tweet? Do you have faith in the local police to respect and protect all citizens? Did Bernie 2016 give you faith in Democratic Socialism, in young voters? Do you have faith in your skills, education, and training to make a career for yourself in a roiling, shifting society? Do you have faith in a God, gods, or your dogs? Do you have faith in your rationality? Do you buy lottery tickets?
We at Bad Subjects invite you to pull back the curtain on your faith, whatever shape it takes, and examine its sociopolitical ramifications.
