Example text

Both Lynch and Johnson came home with serious injuries. Piestewa – a single mom – died. The Iraq war of 2002 was initiated by a Texas ‘cowboy’ – President George W. Bush – with no military record to speak of, while women at home in the USA face a refeminization – be it liposuction or a remake of The Stepford Wives – in their everyday lives. In 2005, the film Brokeback Mountain, about a relationship between two actual cowboys, was a hit. Now even cowboys can be gay. The gender confusion is real.

It is an ‘orgy of death,’ destruction and violence. As such war seduces. Christopher Hedges describes and authorizes this Hobbesian version of life and death as one of male conquest. Men are driven by eros, their flirtation with life, and thanatos, death (Hedges 2002: 3, 158, 171). Thomas Hobbes’s world was a world of men – women were missing. War does not give me meaning. Nor do I think war gives most people – male or female – meaning. Hobbes was not right about most men or women.
