Wesley Strong

Wesley Strong studied sociology at Central Connecticut State University, where he graduated from in 2008 with honors. Wes was awarded the C. Wright Mills Award for Excellence in Public Discourse. He writes regularly on topics of politics, society, culture, and economics from a critical perspective. Wes is an anti-capitalist and often writes and speaks from this perspective. He focuses mainly on popular writing, focusing on reaching working-class audiences.

Wes is an admirer of astrophysics, quantum physics, and theoretical physics and often uses them as a frame to discuss social problems. Transhumanism offers an interesting frame through which to understand the world, particularly as it relates to gender, race, and sexuality. Wes is interested in transhumanism and future-tech for the impacts it may have on society, social power structures, economics, and modes macro-level human interaction.
