A very lovely essay from Shannon Keating. (I want to highlight this quote: “Capitalism will not save us; working will not save us; believing we are any more inherently worthy of health care or clean water because of our relationships to so many factors largely outside our control that we’ve been taught, nonetheless, to worship — richness, whiteness, normalcy — will not save us. Now, maybe more of us can finally recognize our only real worth in this world is what we can offer to others. We are all we have.”) (Buzzfeed)
Another great read: America Is a Sham. (Slate)

On Tim Roger’s recommendation kimberleybear read William Gibson’s sci-fi classic, Neuromancer, in preparation for this fall’s release of Cyberpunk 2077. It was a strangely familiar experience. "A lot of the references I recognized immediately were things that actually didn’t exist when the book was published in 1984, but reading it in 2020 was definitely a bizarre experience." Are you more familiar with cyberpunk through movies, books, or games? (Cannonball Read 12)
