Madeleine Albright: ‘The things that are happening are genuinely, seriously bad’ | Books | The Guardian
‘Fascists are typically masters of political theatre. They feed on and inflame grievances by setting “the people” against their “enemies”. Fascists tell their supporters that there are simple fixes for complex problems. They present as national saviours and conflate themselves with the state.’

Erdogan’s reelection is a step toward fascism - The Washington Post
“So what’s next for Turkey? The Turkish model that was supposed to prove the compatibility between Islam, democracy and secularism is no more. But make no mistake: the model collapsed not because of a clash between Islam and secularism. The real story is the rise of authoritarian Turkish nationalism.”

A Book Apart, Flexible Typesetting
For the first time in hundreds of years, because of the web, the role of the typographer has changed. We no longer decide; we suggest. We no longer simply choose typefaces, font sizes, line spacing, and margins; we prepare and instruct text to make those choices for itself. In this new book, Tim Brown illuminates the complex, beautiful world of typesetting, and shows us how to parry the inevitable pressures that arise when we can no longer predict how, and where, our text will be read. Coming July 24 from A Book Apart. Available now for pre-order.

Opinion | A Quisling and His Enablers - The New York Times
“The party’s base really does love Trump, not for his policies, but for the performative cruelty he exhibits toward racial minorities and the way he sticks his thumb in the eyes of ‘elites.’ So any Republican politician who takes a stand on behalf of what we used to think were fundamental American values is at high risk of losing his or her next primary. And as far as we can tell, there is not a single elected Republican willing to take that risk, no matter what Trump does.”

Opinion | Trump Tries to Destroy the West - The New York Times
“It’s impossible to get inside his head and divine his strategic goals, if he even has long-term goals. But put it this way: If a president of the United States were to sketch out a secret, detailed plan to break up the Atlantic alliance, that plan would bear a striking resemblance to Trump’s behavior.”
