From an interview with Nell Bang-Jensen, theatre artist and sometime PEI summer resident:
That our capitalist society places so little value on the work of literally keeping people alive is fascinating (and utterly depressing) to me.
The blame always goes to whoever pulls the trigger, but we have to look at the systemic framework, like the economy of fear. Crime and the war on drugs is good business for the weapon industry. It’s a kind of manifestation of disaster capitalism.
