Boston Review — Colin Dayan: Dead Dogs
Wow! A seriously deep article. Maybe it is just my reading of it, filtered through a bit of historical knowledge, such as the roots of the social service industry in the Progressive Era and the propensity of the State for murder on a grand scale, the indepth research I've done revealing zealous, patronizing, child protection professionals who so often mask their almost innate sense of superiority, their cruelty and contempt with pseudo-humanitarianism... A chilling article. Well done and worth the time to read it and think about it.
