Going Postal, by Mark Ames

Going Postal examines the phenomenon and symbolism of rage inspired murders in public places. Looking at massacres in schools and offices as post-industrial rebellions, Ames juxtaposes the historical place of rage in America with the social climate caused by the changing economic and political conditions since the 1980s Reaganomics era. Ames argues that workplace massacres are modern day slave rebellions. Going Postal seeks to contextualize this violence in a world in which working just isn’t making ends meet anymore.
