I continue to wonder how structural violence gets taken for granted. Staging an event at an APA function in DC does need to challenge that violence in a civil and non-violent manner.

Today we still speak to the basement of the Psychology Dept. at Stanford in 1971 as a location not affected by that social arrangement. Yet Philip Zimbardo remains a member of the Advisory Board of the organization.

I'd like to see PsySR take on structural violence with seriousness of purpose. That "transcendence" would seem to amount to a "work project" in critical support for peace.

"Bang, bang, you're dead!" I find philosophical comfort in the contrary view of social science presented by Donald Verene at Emory, see for instance  here.
