Jack the Ripper, ‘interesting history’ and masculine violence – http://wp.me/p1aZWT-eR

Stumbled across the thought-provoking blogpost above. Good stuff, mirrors to an extent conversation here in the U.S.

I have the sense that fascination and devotion of resources to “violently masculine” subjects in history, rather than the steady contributions of stalwart citizen laborers and professionals of every stripe, may have more to do with human animal social behavior and desire to see how others “made it to the top” in some relative way.
