choi-fitzpatrick-cover-2017ACF - Smaller Green PantsI’m a writer and professor and most of my work explores culture, politics, and social change. I teach at the Kroc School of Peace Studies at the
University of San Diego.

In a new book I show how broad political and economic changes upend the status quo for the powerful and the powerless alike. The once-powerful realize that the benefits they had once enjoyed are no longer of much value. As the recent slogan puts it best: when you’re accustomed to privilege, equality feels like oppression. Globalization has brought massive changes in huge industries and in humble homes—how slaveholders respond to these changes and how we ourselves respond will shape social, economic and political relations for the long twenty-first century. Find out more in this video, or from pieces in the Guardian, Huffington Post, and Aeon.
