The Show Me Librarian: There’s No Room for “Priceless” in My Advocacy
tweet:

This is a terrible dichotomy to make. As children's librarians we must do better. Read @amyeileenk's blog post for a thoughtful response: https://t.co/ytwuzvNYFZ https://t.co/NkmdwniFhK

The Apocalyptic Turn
Nevertheless, some noteworthy cases include: Naomi Klein’s This Changes Everything, Bill McKibben’s Eaarth, McKenzie Wark’s Molecular Red, Rosalind Williams’ The Triumph of Human Empire, Donna Haraway’s Staying with the Trouble, and Isabelle Stengers’ In Catastrophic Times. And various gloomy journals from a variety of ideological perspectives – Dark Mountain, Salvage, Black Box – advance a similar line. There are many differences between these books and amongst their various authors – and some are much more hopeful about the possibilities that apocalyptic scenarios will open up, yet what unites them all is a certain level of agreement with Pope Francis’s comment that it’s time to take doomsday seriously.

The Autocrat's Language | by Masha Gessen | NYR Daily | The New York Review of Books
Trump’s word-piles fill public space with static. This is like having the air we breathe replaced with carbon monoxide. It is deadly. This space that he is polluting is the space of our shared reality. This is what language is for: to enable you to name “secateurs,” buy them, and use them. To make it possible for a surgeon to name “scalpel” and have it placed in her open palm. To make sure that a mother can understand the story her child tells her when she comes home from school, or a judge can evaluate a case being made. None of this is possible when words mean nothing.
