Kill All Normies book cover
Kill All Normies
Angela Nagle - 2017-06-30
Goodreads Rating
"Kill All Normies" dives into the battle of internet culture wars, where alt right and feminist movements clash in cyber space. The author analyses the revival of 90s culture wars and explores the cultural genealogies and past parallels of these styles and subcultures. Drawing from transgressive styles of 60s libertinism and conservative movements, "Kill All Normies" is an engaging read that makes the case for rejecting the perpetual cultural cycle.

Dreamland book cover
The True Tale of America's Opiate Epidemic
Sam Quinones - 2015-04-21
Goodreads Rating
Dreamland tells the riveting story of addiction in small rural towns and suburbs across America. Sam Quinones expertly weaves two tales of capitalism run amok - the unfettered prescribing of pain medications in the 1990s and the massive influx of black tar heroin from Mexico. This devastating collision continues to lay waste to communities across the country. With rich detail and compelling storytelling, Quinones introduces a cast of characters - pharma pioneers, young Mexican entrepreneurs, narcotics investigators, survivors, and parents - revealing the corrosive threat facing America and its heartland.

Fwiw the marvelous book Dreamland, by @samquinones7, does an amazing job of tracking the structural and human causes of the opioid crisis.      source
