      1. Here Butler explores the current wars, in particular the portrayal of state violence in the mass media and its influence on/predominance in daily life, which Butler argues is crucial to contemporary warfare. The influence of the media, Butler argues, renders entire groups of people invisible in the West, where we rationalize death abroad as necessary to protect our own reality. In this book, she calls for the creation of a new Left in opposition to the illegitimate use of state violence.
