    From Sachs to Kristof to Invisible Children to TED, the fastest growth industry in the US is the White Savior Industrial Complex.

    The white savior supports brutal policies in the morning, founds charities in the afternoon, and receives awards in the evening.

    The White Savior Industrial Complex is not about justice. It is about having a big emotional experience that validates privilege.

    Feverish worry over that awful African warlord. But close to 1.5 million Iraqis died from an American war of choice. Worry about that.
