They Thought They Were Free von Milton S. Mayer. Bücher | Orell Füssli
“Writing as a liberal American journalist of German descent and Jewish religious persuasion Mr. Mayer aims--and in the opinion of this reviewer largely succeeds--at scrupulous fairness and unsparing honesty. It is this that gives his book its muscular punch.”

The Origins of Totalitarianism (Harvest Book, Hb244) - Kindle edition by Hannah Arendt. Politics & Social Sciences Kindle eBooks @
Arendt explores the institutions and operations of totalitarian movements, focusing on the two genuine forms of totalitarian government in our time—Nazi Germany and Stalinist Russia—which she adroitly recognizes were two sides of the same coin, rather than opposing philosophies of Right and Left. From this vantage point, she discusses the evolution of classes into masses, the role of propaganda in dealing with the nontotalitarian world, the use of terror, and the nature of isolation and loneliness as preconditions for total domination.

They Have, Right Now, Another You | by Sue Halpern | The New York Review of Books
The massive amount of data we leave behind is collected, combined, sold, analysed and personalised. The results might not always be correct but what does it matter when we become targets. “It would be naive to think that there is a firewall between commercial surveillance and government surveillance. There is not.”

Angela Merkel's call for a burqa ban sets a disturbing precedent
From Laurie Penny: “Banning the burqa might make me feel less anxious. It would not, however, improve the lives of the women who actually wear it. That is what matters. My personal feelings as a white woman about how Muslim women choose to dress are, in fact, staggeringly unimportant.”

Against Bargaining | Laurie Penny
Laury Penny about keeping up the resistance during Donald Trump’s 4-year mandate. Normalising it is so tempting, “…It is a survival strategy, and like many such strategies, it is largely available to those with least to lose.”
“In the coming months and years those of us who still believe in a better world will need to guard the most important frontline—the one in the head.”

We’re heading into dark times. This is how to be your own light in the Age of Trump
At the dawn of Donald Trump’s 4 years in office this essay urges people to take a step back and consider their wished, values, dreams for themselves and the country. After months or years of Trump’s cabinet governing and possibly corrupting the US it might not be so clear anymore which values to hold on to. Tump carries out the strategies of an authoritarian regime. All people have to resist is their own core values.
