The View From Flyover CountryAfter reading two The Shadow Reader essays I got your point Repeating it 33 times did not make it any convincing I agree that the poor and powerless need a much bigger voice and that changes need to be done I don t want to blame the victim any than the author but I did not see much of a movement for them to vote in 2016 Protest marches and complaining are poor substitutes for an organized political and labor movements Power can only be changed by other power and organization is power I ve been following Sarah Kendzior s writing for a while possibly since Ferguson first made it into mainstream news I bought her book because I wanted to support her work This book is strictly a collection that republishesssays and articles she s written before with some minimal organization into certain topicsWhen I revisited the book in November 2016 I wanted to understand how the United States lected Trump and what history predicts for our near future I found that the ssays were less thoroughly for our near future I found that the ssays were less thoroughly than I remembered and that the book wasn t that focused in terms of understanding modern day America It s definitely still valuable but maybe not the most urgent thing to readI think the most critical ssays to revisit are the ones about flyover country and about the Ira war Here are a few The Power Of A Choice excerpts that stood out to meIra showed us that the conseuences for gross negligence were less than anyone had imagined This gaping disconnect between people and power and the public s resignation to adjusting to injustices rather than challenging them has shaped the post warra We lost in Ira than a war We lost accountability and faith in our institutions and most of all we lost the outrage that accompanies that loss because we came to xpect it and accept it as normal This uiet acuiescence is we came to xpect it and accept it as normal This uiet acuiescence is the nd as damaging as any lie we were told The absence of complaining should be taken as a sign that something is rotting in a society Complaining is beautiful Complaining should be ncouraged Complaining means you have a chance The results of the 2016 presidential The Case for Paleolibertarianism and Realignment on the Right election left many stunned Over the course of the day and into thevening political pundits continued to predict Clinton would prevail Oh My God, What a Complete Aisling even as the Trump campaign gained significant leads and thelection Monsieur Pain ended in a Trump victory But there was at least one person who was not surprised Sarah Kendzior an academic researcher and St Louis based journalist could see the writing on the wall that others missed and became one of the first credited with predicting the outcome Between 2012 2014 Kendzior wrote a series ofssays originally published by Al Jazeera about the broken promise of the American Dream for the people living in between the coasts otherwise known as flyover country Now a selection of those ssays has been collected for the first time in print The View From Flyover Country Dispatches from the Forgotten America and it is a searing heartbreaking and unforgettable readKendzior had been studying authoritarian states in Eastern Asia for years and began to recognize signs in the US that she had seen in the countries she xamined She then began to write about those observations through the lens of her life in St Louis She touches on varying subjects including the rise of adjunct faculty along with the corresponding decrease in tenured faculty at US colleges and universities How students at those same institutions of higher learning are facing rising tuition costs often going into debt to pay them and finding upon graduation going into debt to pay them and finding upon graduation the only pathway to a job in their chosen field reuires them to work unpaid internships She also noted the rise in bigotry in the US whether related to race religion gender sexual orientation or possibly most importantly in our current climate and conomic status Kendzior unflinchingly conveyed the results of decades of ineualities nacted on those whose protests have not been heard.
