Cultural critic Henry Giroux examines the ways in which conflict has entered the fabric of American life - from the ways social and economic problems are met with state violence, to a media and political class the celebrates cruelty and spectacle - and explains why renewing social bonds and class solidarity are key to reclaiming control of public life from the forces that make strangers, and enemies, of us all.
