It went well today in class. I used examples – the triangular slave trade, passing gas, divorce and the time my friend Hoke chained himself to a truck – to get across how capitalism makes and unmakes the material world, and how our consent is a matter of faith, discipline, and desire.
I got into an almost-heated debate with my da, the smartest Hillary supporter i know.

A fair question.
