YouTube School for Social Politics \\\ Red76

In this third--double feature--edition of the YouTube School for Social Politics Robby Herbst of the L.A. based Journal of Aesthetics and Protest presented his essay "Mediation, Self-Marginalization and Post-politics in Protest Media," a look at the movement away from protest in the public sphere and into a strangely hermetic form of communication and resistance.

Then Red 76's Gabriel Saloman presented his essay on "Mystery Ecology." It is both an examination of an oft ignored, or downplayed, component of the global environmental movement which seeks to preserve natural space due to its "sacred value," as well as an inquiry into the imaginal and spiritual loss that is endured by the destruction and invasion of wilderness.
