Marking the 20th anniversary of the onset of America’s War on Terror, we bring you the second book in Barakunan’s The Case for Bara series: AMERICAN TERROR. A look at the current geopolitical fragmentation, making the case that the catastrophic announcement of the War on Terror, the result of the nefarious agenda of the American Empire, shattered notions of justice, democracy and truth and caused a rupture so volatile an entire portion of the Earth is lit with the perpetual flames of war.
Zahreddine, ever the optimist, observes this world and responds by suggesting that, given all that has transpired, the current situation is an invitation to work together to enrich our imagination and strengthen our position in society. A roundup of 21st century politics and the circumstances that necessitate a call to arms, Zahreddine’s AMERICAN TERROR compounds the environmental and socio-political conditions and degeneration of collective spirit that led us to this crux. Setting the path for the Third Way, the following text expounds the ingredients for a Total Revolution - that is; complete and constant transformation of systems of the self, the collective, and the political. Formatted in concise propositions, explicatory corollaries, and a glossary of terms.
It is the second book in The Case for Bara series - a collection of texts that delve into holistic, alternative readings of contemporary politics, identity, metaphysics, and language. The Martyrs, the first in The Case for Bara series, was released in December 2018.
