My liberal white male rage: What should I do about it? -
Good mirror for my own thought patterns.
Reminds me of Bell Hooks, describing how the Patriarchy equals power with domination. Men are raised to dominate others. Those power fantasies are deeply implanted in patriarchal masculinity and even intoxicates genuine efforts to do the right thing.

Sapiens von Yuval Noah Harari. Bücher | Orell Füssli
(Recommended by Andrea Staudacher)
In Sapiens, Dr Yuval Noah Harari spans the whole of human history, from the very first humans to walk the earth to the radical - and sometimes devastating - breakthroughs of the Cognitive, Agricultural and Scientific Revolutions. Drawing on insights from biology, anthropology, palaeontology and economics, he explores how the currents of history have shaped our human societies, the animals and plants around us, and even our personalities. Have we become happier as history has unfolded? Can we ever free our behaviour from the heritage of our ancestors? And what, if anything, can we do to influence the course of the centuries to come?

Homo Deus von Yuval Noah Harari. Bücher | Orell Füssli
(Recommended by Andrea Staudacher)
Sapiens showed us where we came from. Homo Deus shows us where we're going.
War is obsolete. You are more likely to commit suicide than be killed in conflict.
Famine is disappearing. You are at more risk of obesity than starvation.
Death is just a technical problem. Equality is out - but immortality is in.
What does our future hold?

What Does It Mean to Be White? von Robin DiAngelo. Bücher | Orell Füssli
What does it mean to be white in a society that proclaims race meaningless, yet is deeply divided by race? In the face of pervasive racial inequality and segregation, most white people cannot answer that question. In the second edition of this seminal text, Robin DiAngelo reveals the factors that make this question so difficult: mis-education about what racism is; ideologies such as individualism and colorblindness; segregation; and the belief that to be complicit in racism is to be an immoral person…
