As with free-market capitalism in general, the worse work gets, the harder it is to imagine actually escaping it, so enormous are the steps required

The Apocalyptic Turn
Nevertheless, some noteworthy cases include: Naomi Klein’s This Changes Everything, Bill McKibben’s Eaarth, McKenzie Wark’s Molecular Red, Rosalind Williams’ The Triumph of Human Empire, Donna Haraway’s Staying with the Trouble, and Isabelle Stengers’ In Catastrophic Times. And various gloomy journals from a variety of ideological perspectives – Dark Mountain, Salvage, Black Box – advance a similar line. There are many differences between these books and amongst their various authors – and some are much more hopeful about the possibilities that apocalyptic scenarios will open up, yet what unites them all is a certain level of agreement with Pope Francis’s comment that it’s time to take doomsday seriously.

The Autocrat's Language | by Masha Gessen | NYR Daily | The New York Review of Books
Trump’s word-piles fill public space with static. This is like having the air we breathe replaced with carbon monoxide. It is deadly. This space that he is polluting is the space of our shared reality. This is what language is for: to enable you to name “secateurs,” buy them, and use them. To make it possible for a surgeon to name “scalpel” and have it placed in her open palm. To make sure that a mother can understand the story her child tells her when she comes home from school, or a judge can evaluate a case being made. None of this is possible when words mean nothing.

Critical Pedagogy, Critical Conversations: Expanding Dialogue about Critical Library Instruction through the Lens of Composition and Rhetoric – In the Library with the Lead Pipe
Yagelski’s work is one example of a more encouraging discourse about critical teaching. Drawing from the Zen concept of non-dualism, which contrasts dualist conceptions of the self, Yagelski (1999) offers an alternative to the “teacher-as-hero” narrative. While some critical pedagogy discourse may encourage teachers to identify strongly with their positions as teachers, and while such identification can to some extent be a source for meaningful teaching, Yagelski sees a need to remember that “good teaching is not about the teacher” (italics in the original text). Rather, teaching is foremost about students’ learning. Thus, “the teacher’s agenda must ultimately become secondary to the student’s needs even as the teacher’s identity remains a central part of the student’s education” (43). By embracing such a perspective, Yagelski believes that writing instructors might be better able to “avoid the dogmatism that characterizes too much of our scholarly and public discussions about teaching writing.” In so doing, “we accept the uncertainty that comes with acknowledging that we, the teachers, may not know exactly what is right for all our students all the time—or even most of them some of the time” (46).
