Law & Order: SVU (1999-present)

A sobering morality play about the iron-fisted rituals of state power intersecting with the relentless enactment of normative behavior; the use of SVU subject matters is an especially grotesque medium through which to make an ultimately normalizing and moralizing statement about deference to status quo power relations and structural prejudice (with bonus points for mapping a rough sketch of the evolution of socially acceptable behavior, views, and language through the tumultuous early 2000s; not recommended.)

we live in a society by Gabriel Winint

this essay, which can be found at  https://nplusonemag.com/online-only/online-only/we-live-in-a-society , is a very long, detailed, and well thought out look at the state of political organizing in relation to contemporary social groups and networks, though it has a very difficult and off-putting digression into theory in the middle sections.
