Several important key terms come up in this early part of the book. These key terms come up repeatedly in the book, and thus, Hochschild uses them as a way to help us understand her main idea. Just like links to the thesis help us see the thread of your ideas in an essay, these key terms help us see how her ideas develop from chapter to chapter.
In this post, you will work closely with ONE of these key terms (I’ve included page references for important mentions, but you will see this term come up on many other pages, also):
- empathy wall (5)
- great paradox (8)
- deep story (16)
- taxes, faith, and honor (47)
- structural amnesia (51)
- silence (56, 60, 61)
- industry (ch. 6)
- the state (ch. 7)
- the pulpit (ch. 8)
- the press (ch. 8)
Here is what I would like you to do:
- Define the one key term you have chosen.
- Explain in a paragraph how this term appears in the lives of the people in Louisiana that are the subject of Hochschild’s book. Use specific examples from the book, including page references.
- Explain in a paragraph how you believe this term shapes the broader political landscape in America. For example, if you chose “empathy wall,” tell us how you think that that empathy walls shape the kinds of conversations that are possible (and not possible) between people of different political beliefs. I know many of you are international students new to America—but know that your outside perspective is valuable. Even if you are not an expert, you do have impressions, and those impressions will be really useful.

Once you have entered your own answer, respond to another’s post with another healthy paragraph. Validate what you find interesting about what they say, then add something to their analysis. What can you say more about? What do you have a different opinion on? Remember to be respectful.
