Hoarders, Doomsday Preppers, and the Culture of Apocalypse
|Publication Date||June 2014|
|Formats||Hardcover Ebook (PDF) Ebook (EPUB)|
The culture of twenty-first century America largely revolves around narcissistic death, violence, and visions of doom. As people are bombarded with amoral metanarratives that display an almost complete lack of empathy for others on television, in films, and on the internet, their insatiable appetite for excessive pain and routine death reflects an embrace of an endlessly warring culture. Foster explores this culture of the apocalypse, from hoarding and gluttony to visions of the post-apocalyptic world.
