This Has Always Been a War: The Radicalization of a Working Class Queer
by Lori Fox Author
In this timely and powerful account, author Lori Fox examines capitalism and patriarchy through the lens of their own experiences with subjugation along class and gender lines. Infiltrating and controlling every aspect of our lives, capitalism, patriarchy, and their chief beneficiaries (upper class white cis men) work in tandem to propagate and reproduce the ideal conditions for their existence: cheap, disposable labor primarily made up of marginalized out groups, such as Black and Indigenous folk, immigrants, queer folk, and women. In essays that are both accessible and compelling, Fox shares anecdotes and analysis borne of their time working as a bartender, farmhand, and traveling worker, taking a close look at the ugly and exploitative ways that undervalued labor collides with issues of gender, sexuality, race, and the environment. A searing missive from the front lines of the ongoing class struggle, This Has Always Been a War is a call to action and a sharp reproach to anyone feeling comfortable with the status quo.
