When I say ‘Image’ what do people think of? Photographs? Television? The kind of image I want to discuss is the image that people cultivate for themselves in order to be, well, worshiped.

Consider a Kardashian. I won’t talk about my personal opinion of them, but a person close to me is a fan of their show, which ‘documents’ their lives. In this show, each of the stars is ‘A Something’. One of them is the mean one, one of them is the dumb one, one of them is the promiscuous one. This trend can be seen across most types of media, and even in day to day lives.

You might wonder, aren’t I just talking about personalities? What if that’s what they’re actually like?

While that may be true, I have another example. Youtubers. You might not keep up with them too much, but you probably know the template…

America is currently a nation divided. We’ve had our differences in the past, but usually, everything’s worked out alright. That’s because we were on top. I won’t say we aren’t still the most powerful nation on Earth, because by many measures, we are. What we need to realize is that while we might still be the most powerful, we may not still be a nation.

The problem many people seem to have is accepting that ‘Nation’ doesn’t mean the same thing it did last October. Whichever side of the debate over Trump you support (and I intend to remain firmly neutral), you have to accept that he is a major player not just in American politics, but in international business. Protocol would have him sever those connections, but that just isn’t something that one can just do. He’s had business with people the world over. That isn’t something…

Amygdala

The results of the 2016 U.S. presidential election and Trump’s ensuing cabinet choices have brought the U.S. into line with a worrying global Western move toward the far right (see: Greece, the U.K., France). For marginalized people in the Americas both in and out of the DIY punk scene, all this means is that the curtain’s been ripped back, the chaos exposed—the colonial legacies and the long histories of resistance.

There will surely still be some cliched and irritating calls for punk to “get good again, like it was during Reagan”—as if important punk resistance suddenly stopped in 1992 with a Democratic president. (Anyone who’s been paying attention would beg to differ.) Five-piece San Antonio political punk cabal Amygdala position themselves as part of this ongoing tradition; they started making ferocious, caustic and outspoken hardcore together in 2014, and their 2016 effort, Population Control, certainly pulls no punches. “
