These books kill fascists. A short thread.

1. Autocracy, language, propaganda and resistance:

ON TYRANNY and THE ROAD TO UNFREEDOM - @TimothyDSnyder

DON’T THINK OF AN ELEPHANT! - @GeorgeLakoff

HOW DEMOCRACIES DIE - @dziblatt / S. Livitsky
2. Reckoning with our history to inform our future:

AMERICAN NATIONS, AMERICAN CHARACTER and UNION - @WoodardColin

THESE TRUTHS - Jill Lepore
3. Powerful citizenship and (re)claiming our national character:

BECOME AMERICA - @ericpliu

THIS AMERICA: THE CASE FOR THE NATION - Jill Lepore
“When we repeat the same words and phrases that appear in the daily media, we accept the absence of a larger framework. To have such a framework requires more concepts, and having more concepts requires reading. Get the screens out of your room and surround yourself with books.”
