A March 16, 2017 Guardian article is entitled: “How to survive gaslighting: when manipulation erases your reality: Ariel Leve offers strategies to stay resilient in the face of psychological abuse that distorts the truth – much like what’s coming from Trump’s administration.”


An article in the March 27, 2017 issue of the New Yorker is entitled: “The Reclusive Hedge-Fund Tycoon behind the Trump Presidency: How Robert Mercer exploited America’s populist insurgency.

A May 2008  (Vol. 56(3): 371–379) Current Sociology article is entitled: “Globalization, Degradation and the Dynamics of Humiliation.”

A June 27, 2017 Harvard Gazette article is entitled: “Inequality’s influence: Study shows that exposure to inequality reduces support for ‘millionaire’s tax’.”
