yeah, i'm less in thrall to the derrick book now, having read further on. there's a lot of stuff i'll be coming back to and a lot i want to say about things he articulates about violence and control (need! more! time!). he really hasn't got his anti-racism sorted though, despite (including?) his putting-on-a-pedestal of Native Americans and other indigenous peoples. so far, he's got offended on two occasions when people of colour haven't welcomed him with open arms as he arrives to join in what they're doing. yeah despite his apparent humility and at-one-ness, he seems to carry a great big sense of white male entitlement. hmmm.

i'm letting my short attention span lead for now, and it's leaped to Zizek, which is a whole nother post...
