Who is Joseph Kaminski?
I’m a history student working on a double major in history and anthropology. I write about history, philosophy, sociology, social psychology, progressive politics, and old books. I’m a future educator, and I am currently an underappreciated author, sometimes-student-teacher, and a coffee aficionado.
I supported Bernie Sanders in the Democratic primaries and reluctantly voted for Hillary Clinton in the general election of 2016. I label myself as a progressive – I’m pro-environmental, pro-living wage, pro-single payer healthcare, pro-free college. I know that global warming is real, that the Earth isn’t flat, that the U.S. private prison industry is legalized slavery, that neoliberalism is killing the Democratic Party, and that history and sociology are perhaps the two most important subjects our society has yet ignores.
I’m currently working on two major off-site projects: a lengthy thesis on the history of neoliberalism in modern day America (along with the evolution of American economics and its affects on global society) and a brief history of video games and their sociological impact on western culture.
