I designed this sentence generator with Matthew Hollett in 2019 after U.S. propaganda campaigns like these. Informed by June Jordan's Problems of Language in a Democratic State (1982) and Michael Warner's Publics and Counterpublics (2002), in which he points toward "a way of imagining a speech for which there is yet no scene, and a scene for which there is no speech."


“Public speech must be taken in two ways: as addressed to us and as addressed to strangers. Our subjectivity is understood as having relevance with others. The trace of our strangerhood remains present in our understanding of ourselves as the addressee.” –Michael Warner
