Both in the singular and plural, equity matters will present a series of experiences that will address what a majority of experts consider the root cause of the vast social, economic, racial, and environmental inequities that plague a huge portion of America: hyperindividualism. We have been systematically separated from each other for the sake of the profit motive and manipulation. We have become data sets created as a commodity to be sold and traded to corporations. Through a faltering education system that has crippled our ability to think critically, a news and entertainment empire designed to manufacture consent, an ever-increasing military/industrial complex, such things as community, tradition, self-worth have been either distorted to a place unrecognizable by any or replaced by a synthetic, amoral, unethical version of ourselves.
