Against Resilience / Ajay Singh Chaudhary

This is fine

It’s like you're going to the doctor and you're like, “Dude, I got a lot of problems.” And he's like, “here you go.” And the prescription, instead of being meds, the prescription is, “Feel better about the world.” Do some training where you understand that in fact, there are no problems. You just need to like have a different world view. You just need to have a positive outlook…It's so that you don't think. It's so that you don't imagine, so that you don't believe that something else might be possible.

Ajay Singh Chaudhary returns to This Is Hell! to talk about his Baffler Magazine article, "Sick and Tired: Against Resilience," an excerpt from, The Exhausted of the Earth: Politics in a Burning World (Repeater Books). An all-new Rotten History follows the interview.
