Bad News
How Woke Media Is Undermining Democracy
Batya Ungar-Sargon - 2021-10-26
Calificación de Goodreads
In "Bad News," Batya Ungar-Sargon exposes the dangerous ideological shift in American journalism that has led to a news media that is more woke than liberal. Ungar-Sargon explains how journalism became an affluent and elite profession, focused on the concerns of highly educated peers. This shift, combined with the rise of the internet and the implosion of local news, has led to a dangerous culture war around identity that is undermining American democracy. "Bad News" uncovers the truth behind the moral panic around race and the power consolidation of liberal elites.

Why Good People Are Divided by Politics and Religion
Jonathan Haidt - 2021-10-13 (publicado por primera vez en 2012)
Calificación de Goodreads
Por qué los juicios morales no surgen de la razón sino de los instintos. En unos tiempos como los actuales, de enorme polarización política, resulta inevitable hacernos una pregunta: ¿por qué no podemos llevarnos bien? Seamos de derechas o de izquierdas, demasiadas veces tenemos la sensación de que nuestro adversario, además de oponerse a nosotros, no entiende en absoluto nuestras posturas y ni siquiera lo intenta. Eso hace que las divisiones sociales se estén consolidando, el debate público se convierta en un griterío y que en su mayoría los ciudadanos crean que sólo ellos están en lo cierto.Muchas personas, guiadas por razones morales que en realidad no son fruto de la razón, sino de un tribalismo parcialmente innato, son incapaces de entender que tanto los progresistas como los conservadores o los liberales, los creyentes y los ateos, tienen parte de razón; el conflicto moral les impide verlo.

I love @JonHaidt's book The Righteous Mind so much and I think it all boils down to: "never forget everyone is full of shit including me."      fuente

"Securing Democracy" is a riveting and courageous book documenting the fight for press freedom in Brazil, where corruption and authoritarianism threaten democracy.

As a classically trained dumb American, I don't know shit about politics in Brazil, so I was worried I wouldn't fully understand @ggreenwald's book 'Securing Democracy' but he does a great job laying the groundwork and I learned quite a lot from it.      fuente

This book highlights the immediate global threat to democracy by the China-Russia axis, which challenges America and Western values. The author provides a comprehensive analysis of the challenges, both internal and external, that the United States is currently facing, and how the rise of authoritarianism is impacting free societies and people around the world.

Highly praised by Fareed Zakaria, John Bolton, and Bob Shrum, this book is a must-read for those concerned about the future of free societies.

Reading @DouglasESchoen's book was like looking up from Twitter and getting hit by a bus. We're worried about the outrage du jour and meanwhile our division weakens us as individuals & a nation. A terrifying slap in the face that I needed.      fuente
How to Destroy America in Three Easy Steps book cover
How to Destroy America in Three Easy Steps
Ben Shapiro - 2020-07-21
Calificación de Goodreads
How to Destroy America in Three Easy Steps delves into the disintegrationist movement, which aims to cancel America's shared history, ideals, and culture, and replace it with an increased reliance on the government. Author Ben Shapiro argues that we need to uphold foundational truths about ourselves, our history, and reality itself in order to remain a cohesive nation. This book is a vital warning that if we don’t recover these shared truths, our future—our union—as a great country is threatened with destruction.
