How We Get Free - A Reading List
The original intention of this list was to present an array of broadly anti-fascist reading. As I began putting it together, it became apparent that while such lists are good, I wanted ours to do something different.
I wanted ours to identify what has happened and is happening, yes; but also to reflect upon the fresh ways forward. Fascism has been resisted in the past, and it has been seemingly defeated. Its reoccurence, I have to believe, is neither a coincidence nor an inevitability.
There have been (and remain) actively suppressed paths forward -- with leadership and wisdom too often silenced -- that attend to the conditions where white supremacy, misogyny, and hate are the guiding principles.
I wanted a list attending to these winding, intersecting paths.
A word about lists: they should evolve. This isn't stone, and even that cracks and fades. Our crisis didn't start with Trump, and it won't end when we vote on Nov. 3, 2020. Like all acts of resistance and revolution, my hope is this one, too, might change with the ongoing conversation and alongside the coming community. -- Brad (10/19/20)
