Review of 'It Came from Something Awful' on 'Goodreads'

5 stars

Overall, great capture of the creation of internet culture, the pathway to radicalization and just the way that society is failing great swaths of people across the board. The only whacky bits are the "divisions of Antifa" and "members of Antifa" shouts that I kept seeing when those aren't even really groups (more on that in "Culture Warlords" by Talia Lavin). That's such a small sticking point that I can't really give too much heat to the overall book however. Great content, fun read, worth the while.

Review of 'Harvest of Empire : A History of Latinos in America' on 'Goodreads'

5 stars

This is probably the most thorough and important book about the history of Latinos in America. Covering the history of American interventionism, it ties a thread from Central & Southern America to the United States, detailing interventionism, imperialism and state-driven capitalism.
