Grenfell and the banality of modern power: and how very ordinary people diligently partake in evil

In Uncategorized on June 4, 2018 at 4:13 pm

The Grenfell tragedy reveals another possible horror and that is the absence of individual actors to bear, in a very modern moral sense, the culpability that our notions of ‘leadership’ require. We place great store on leaders as agents who have power to change our world, but when failure strikes it seems contemporary society is unable to idenfity the same power that we once placed so much hope in.
