Hunt the Devil is taking a June break. We will return on Wednesday, July 5, the day after Independence Day, with a post about our better angels.
We’re not letting the month pass without continuing to work on the project of mythic intervention. The pause in posts is allowing us to collect our thoughts about “After Empire,” our next book project.
The book is an exercise in mythic anagnorisis. The spirit of Old Man Coyote inspires us to think about slipping the war trap. How, we ask, might the country’s better angels help the citizenry to envision life beyond forever war? An exodus from war culture and its incantations of empire, as we see it, moves beyond lamentations of militarism into a deliberative space of democracy by dissent.
Future posts here at Hunt the Devil will continue to explore democratic resources for escaping the mindset of war.
