Brilliant Minds for Desperate Times

“The country is being played,” wrote a friend in a recent email. I would add that people’s pain is being exploited by the purveyors of neoliberalism. How do we understand where we are and ways forward? For astute critical analysis, perspective, and direction during these dire times, I read the following journalists/authors among others:

Amy Goodman at @democracynow: www.democracynow.org                              @NaomiAKlein a Canadian author and columnist: www.naomiklein.org/main           @jbouie at Slate & CBS: www.slate.com/authors.jamelle_bouie.html
@CharlesMBlow at the NYT: www.nytimes.com/column/charles-m-blow
@tanehisicoates at The Atlantic: www.theatlantic.com/author/ta-nehisi-coates/

No false hope or solace peddled by these authors. Instead, their hard-hitting writing further exposes structural violence and the injustices that jeopardize us all. At this moment, four days from the next President’s inauguration, I am not optimistic about our future. But I refuse to be a bystander with so much at stake. Read, resist, reclaim.
