Social (re)Actions

The "Are We Ready Yet?" series of books dating from the 2000s addressed the shifting landscape, language, psychology, and politics of national homeland security. The title references a Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) publication titled "Are You Ready? A Guide to Citizen Preparedness." This booklet was eerily reminiscent of "What to Do in Case of a Nuclear Disaster," published by the US government in 1954, which inspired IN CASE OF EMERGENCY:. Am I surprised the tone, manner, and type of information the government is willing to share with the general pop has changed little in fifty years? The Bush books are rather one dimensional, in keeping with their subject. Any depth comes from the cathartic purpose they serve(d).

Social and political culture continue to inspire work that provides a civil outlet of frustration and/or outrage.
