This paper arises from my own guilt at finding myself complicit in the structural violence inflicted on certain groups of people in the world. I find myself complicit on many counts. I watch the news, I witness inequality as I make my way through every day, I read about inequality in books and research, I document inequality through my research with disadvantaged young people. All of these leave me feeling sad, angry, upset, and yet I do nothing. This paper charts my progress from this point in an autoethnographic account.
