Fear and Loathing: The Springboards of Modern Culture

April 24-26, 2007

Fear and demonization have been some of the most powerful forces enlisted to
create borders between cultures. The call to build a wall between the US &
Mexico, the terms Islamofascism, and surrender monkies, the glorification of
violence in popular media-all are current expressions of fear and
loathing. In America's past we have seen fear and loathing expressed in
regard to Fascism, the Red Scare, the KKK, Japanese internment camps, the
Reservation system, deportations of foreigners, eradications of languages
other than English.
