Featuring Joan Braune, Lecturer in Philosophy at Gonzaga University

How does White House Chief Strategist Stephen Bannon shape what militarism looks like under President Trump? How does it connect to white supremacy, xenophobia, corporate exploitation, torture, Christian supremacy, patriarchy and far-right power? This presentation and discussion will connect the dots between militarism and other forms of oppression and violence as it relates to President Trump and White House Chief Strategist Stephen Bannon & his Breitbart associates' plans for war.
