Vanguard Aesthetics by Alex B. Vanguard
From the Author:
"As We find ourselves navigating this world, we bleive that the way in which we've experienced the world is how reality is. This is, however, a naive way to navigate this world, because we not only invalidate the experiences of others around us, but also leave no room to question our beliefs or ideas. We are fed all these beliefs, ideas and knowledge by our family, our culture, the media we consume; all shaping the way in which we understand our political, economic and social world. I urge you, as you continue page by page, to examine the way power and deception have played a major role in your own personal construction of reality.
This edition will focus more specifically on the concept of Cultural Hegemony. The content throughout is a lens into how hegemony plays out in aspects of our culture, as well as the consequences from it."
