The ultimate test of your own understanding is to be able to explain a concept to children. Circle Time is educational television for a new age, teaching kids (and us all) about the complicated social machinery of our technocapitalist world.
To undo structural inequality, you’ve got to start small. Like literally small. Like with children.
