Subject: BHA: Terrorism and poverty (fwd)


I thought the statistics below drive home the point about the difference
between named and nameless victims.  They also make us aware of the degree
to which structural violence is naturalized.  From a Bhaskarian
perspective, would this be because of detotalization and an empiricist
framework?
