Dear Readers, Welcome to the Zeteo Fall Issue 2012. In a United States election year we began with the idea of choice. We challenged writers to speak about the choices human beings make not only in politics, but also as consumers, spectators and thinkers. We proposed that choice might be an illusion—our “choices” channeled by economic regimes, education, custom, […]
