  1. Collective Memory and Cultural Amnesia
    Introduction to the December 17, 2017 issue of Other Voices

    Resource Type: Article
    Published: 2017
    Our society is obsessed with the short-term present. It devalues memories and the past. That's the nature of capitalism, especially the speeded-up hypercapitalism of today. The past is useless: profits are made by getting rid of the old and replacing it with something new.
  2. Other Voices: The Connexions Newsletter - December 17, 2017

    Resource Type: Serial Publication (Periodical)
    Published: 2017
