Book Club or Resource List

I’m not sure if anyone else is interested in either doing a book club, or if that is too much, maybe this could just serve as a collection of resources for learning more about Socialism, Communism, Anarchism, and other Left Wing political theory and practice.

I’m not sure if I should have posted this under the Reading Group, but maybe this could serve as a pipeline for books that the Reading Group endorses?

Lemme know what y’all think!

Yeah, we should keep the Reading Group going even after we’ve finished the ABCs of Capitalism.

And if you have any recommendations, feel free to share them.

I was thinking either “Rules for Radicals” by Saul Alinksy or “Capitalist Realism” by Mark Fisher.
Honestly I have a million books I’d like to read but I am become illiterate in the age of Tiktok, Youtube, and Twitter

I can’t say I’ve read either of those books, but from what you brought up at the Steering Committee meeting, it sounds like Rules for Radicals has some pretty useful strategies.

It was recommended to me by a Occupy organizer, and I’ve found it to be very interesting.
I’m listening to it, because the internet has robbed me of my ability to read for any length of time, but it also means I get to spend my work hours learning about radical politics!

“The People’s Republic of Walmart: How the world’s biggest corporation islaying the foundation for socialism”
By Leogh Phillips & Michal Rozworski

This book describes how large corps use central planning and how we might expropriate this infrastructure to build a better world.

“The Activist’s Media Handbook”

There are some issues with this book, but theres plenty of useful info about what not to do if you want to win people over politically.
