Deus Ex Hex

Hate’s coming-of-age story is one that’s been told and retold through the ages—from the Roman Empire to the Holocaust. From the KKK to Bosnia. From James Earl Ray to Donald Trump. Ain’t no happily-ever-after when violence is the story’s narrator. Bombs, bullets, and lynchings ain’t so much a deus ex machina as a cruel devil in the details. This current avalanche of rampant denial and denigration leaves us all in suspended animation between enchained ignorance and those pursuing freedom through knowledge and imagination. Border walls ain’t all they’re cracked up to be if the enemy’s already inside.
