Islamic terrorists. Vengeful nationalis ts. Racist presidents. Social media misogynists. In today&rsquo\;s world\, paranoid hatred&mdash\;and the wrath of the people who spread it&mdash\;i s inescapable. Where does all the rage come from?\n\nJoin Zocalo and JANM at the Tateuchi Democracy Forum for a discussion with Panjak Mishra\, auth or of&nbsp\;<em>Age of Anger: A History of the Present</em>&nbsp\;for a di scussion moderated by Gregory Rodriguez\, founder and Editor-in-Chief of Z &oacute\;calo Public Square. Mishra locates the answer\, paradoxically\, i n modernity&rsquo\;s successes.\n\nAs the world has become more closely li nked via mass politics and technology and the pursuit of wealth\, those un able to enjoy the fruits of progress have been cast adrift\, uprooted from older traditions. Many have responded by lashing out at elites\, by inven ting enemies\, attempting to recreate an imaginary golden age\, and seekin g self-empowerment through apocalyptic rhetoric and spectacular violence. What is the attraction of cultural supremacism and rancorous brutality in this age? What does the history of previous transitions in global politics and technology tell us about how to manage the backlash? And what does th is moment require&mdash\;in terms of new thinking&mdash\;if humanity is to survive its own anger? Mishra visits Z&oacute\;calo to explore the parado xical perils of freedom\, stability\, and prosperity.\n\n<em><span style=" color: #333333\; font-family: Arial\; font-size: x-small\;">In the Tateuch i Democracy Forum</em><strong></strong><em></em>\n<strong></strong><em></e m><a href="http://www.zocalopublicsquare.org/event/modern-world-angry/" ta rget="_blank">RSVP NOW &gt\;&gt\;</a>\n\nCheck for updates at <a href="htt p://www.janm.org/events/2018/03/#01" target="_blank">janm.org</a>\n<a href ="http://www.janm.org/events/2018/03/#01" target="_blank"></a> SUMMARY:Why Is the Modern World So Angry?
