Serious post: Bullshit Jobs by David Graeber is good and you should read it

Wait, the whole list? Umm, hold on, damn, I really should make an actual list at some point, if only to keep this mess straight in my head. I was doing that at first -- but, at first, "Capitalism" was it's own category in my folder struture -- eventually I just sorted everything into fiction and nonfiction, mostly the latter >.>

Racism Without Racists, White Trash: 400 Years (something, something), Why I'm nno Longer Talking to White People About Race, Stamped From the Beginning, The New Human Rights Movement, The Job, Flash Boys: A Wall Street Revolt, Underland: A Deep Time Journey, The Socialist manifesto: The Case for Radical Politics in an Era of Extreme Inequality, American Exceptionalism and American Innocence: A People's History of Fake News, This Cahnges Everything (Naomi Klein), New Dark Age: TEchnology and the End of the Future, The Spirit Level, The Inner Level, A Colony in a Nation (Chris Hayes), Devil Take the Hindmost: A History of Finalcial Speculation, We Wish to Inform you that Tomorrow We Will be Killed with Our Families, Creating Freedom (Raoul MArtinez), The Half has never Been told, Behave: The Biology of Humans at Our Best and Worst, The Rise and Fall of American Growth (Robert Gordon), Fateful Triangle (Chomsky)

Like, that's all the good stuff just from the last month. Right, tell you what, I exported my goodreads library, I'll sort thru it this weekend, pull out all the fiction and really trash books, sort the good stuff -- it's bedtime now, got work tonight, but, in the meantime, , flick thru that if you want? And again, let me know if there are specific topics you've got in mind, cause I'm liable to throw things under "Race" "Class" "History" "Empire" "The rich" "Cornerstone" "Feminism" and such vague shit . .. I started out with Capitalism, Politics/Religion, History and Biography, after all.
