March’s Top Posts
With over 2k reads, March’s most popular post was this one, comparing our refusal of socialism to the Luddite movement.
The top premium post was this review of Jack London’s The Iron Heel, and what we can learn from London’s eerily-accurate predictions.
I highly recommend you check out Emily the Criminal on Netflix. It’s about a young woman, who, faced with the inescapable poverty of American Capitalism, ventures into the world of white-collar crime to pay her student loan debt. It’s thrilling and the acting is phenomenal, plus the themes of exploitation and labor rights are constant throughout.
This month I read Contact by Carl Sagan as part of an online book club. The story is great and Sagan is a fantastic writer not afraid to share his unconventional thoughts on religion, world politics, and economic planning. You can read my full review here.
The weather is getting warmer, meaning country music is about to get its short reprieve from the constant deprivation. Check out this feel-good track from Adam Doleac.
Worth a Read
The NYT confirmed the long-time conspiracy theory that Ronald Reagan worked to keep the Iranian hostages imprisoned to bolster his election campaign. This flew under the radar, so it’s definitely worth your attention.
From the Archives
New readers will appreciate this piece examining the over-funding of American cops. With in-detail looks at how the police budgets of four major cities stack up against international budgets, the data provides a clear picture that the cops are severely overpaid.
