Fanon was very influenced by Césaire; he at one point says in the Wretched of the Earth "Not so long ago, Nazism transformed the whole of Europe into a genuine colony." You could also argue Césaire's statements about how 'Europeans each have a Hitler inside them' as being extended by Fanon's analysis of the psychology of the colonized.

reading like cesaire, fanon, & wynter one after another is really cool to see them elaborate on each other's thoughts in interesting ways

it's pretty annoying that a lot of woke discourse is stuff that people said years ago on tumblr . there are definitely people in academia trading off that knowledge right now & many of the people who did that work are like making 30k for a shitty corporation. there are a lot of people who are angry their work is influential but unpaid & they have no redress. im not sure what my point is it's just a really shitty situation for a lot of people, and what to do about it is tbd atm

lithub has some good stuff. i like the criticism of amazon, but i'm pretty sure defeating amazon's increasingly publishing power will take both offline & online competitors

like we need bandcamp (i'm not actually sure how 'good' bandcamp is) for publishing ebooks

this is largely focused on like the logistics and process behind the leak for reporters (largely the nytimes) & the stories concerning Trump & Russia for those wondering

ALSO THERES A MOMENT WHERE A NEW YORK TIMES REPORTER IS EMAILING ABOUT THE LEAKS WITH GMAIL!!!!!

here's another video focusing on germany

also, from the in the video, it seems like the leak happened just after trump was elected
