We’re in the middle of a political and global crisis. This is no secret. Being in a different country and watching this mess of politics unfurl is hilarious but also eye opening and downright scary. It’s more important than ever to get involved in voting, especially if you don’t want the impending future to actually happen. Capital Hill is no rookie to lies and deceit and unfortunately it’s at all the little people’s expense. This election is a complete joke in my opinion, but it’s a joke that’s worth getting serious about. How people can vote for a bigot and racist is beyond me, but that’s the world we live in. So, with that being said, it’s time get into shape politically and get smart. There is so much that happens in the White House that goes unsaid and decisions that are made under the radar. Instead of being left behind in the all the dust the electoral candidates have kicked up, be proactive and educate yourself in what is happening in the world. Part of that is to READ, READ, READ. I can’t stress enough how important it is to stay abreast on current events. To help you with that, I have made a short list of some important reads in order to better understand America’s political system.
- The Audacity of Hope by Barack Obama
2. The Rise of Political Lying by Peter Oborne
3. The Communist Manifesto by Karl Marx and Frederick Engel
4. It’s Even Worse Than You Thought by Norman Ornstein and Thomas E. Mann
5. The New Jim Crow by Michelle Alexander
So there you have it! Immerse yourself into some political goodness and don’t be blinded any longer. What’s your favorite political read?
