    The Untold History of the United States (tekijä: Oliver Stone) (PlaidStallion)
    PlaidStallion: In case you just didn’t get enough. From the book:

      That Obama refuses to trumpet the notion that the United States is history’s gift to humanity has become an article of faith among Republican leaders who, knowing that 58 percent of Americans believe that “God has granted America a special role in human history,” have opportunistically used Obama’s less-than-full-throated assent to bludgeon him. Former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee charged that Obama's “worldview is dramatically different than any president, Republican or Democrat, we’ve had. . . . He grew up more as a globalist than an American. To deny American exceptionalism is in essence to deny the heart and soul of this nation.”

    Economics for Everyone: A Short Guide to the Economics of Capitalism (tekijä: Jim Stanford) (PlaidStallion)
    PlaidStallion: From the book:

      Another dimension of recent inequality research has shown that inequality tends to become self-reinforcing over time, in the absence of countervailing efforts to reduce income gaps. The bigger are the differences between income groups, the more effort do higher-income people put into protecting their own privilege, and ensuring that their advantages are inherited by their children. These efforts (like building gated communities, or paying for private schools, or even voting against income support programs for poor people) may seem rational for well-off families. But they are unproductive (not to mention unethical) from the perspective of the whole economy. One immediate consequence of this perverse, self-reinforcing tendency is that poverty tends to become geographically concentrated (in very poor neighbourhoods) whenever inequality is worse. That makes it even worse for poor people, because now they must confront not only their own poverty – they must also grapple with the consequences of their neighbours’ poverty (experienced through crime, dysfunction, and social exclusion).

      Precisely because of these barriers to social mobility (erected to protect privilege and keep the poor at a safe social and physical distance), the more unequal is a society, the less mobility there is between classes. For example, the income ratio between the richest and poorest segments of society in the US is more than three times larger than in Denmark. Correspondingly, the correlation between a parent’s income and the income their child takes home later in life is also more than three times stronger in America than in Denmark (where a parent's income has only a minor impact on the income eventually earned by their children). Data from other countries confirms that very unequal societies experience much weaker social mobility. This evidence completely refutes the “Horatio Alger” myth propagated in US culture, which pretends that any poor person with a good idea and strong work ethic can climb to the highest rungs of society. To the contrary, poor people (and their children) tend to stay poor, while rich people wastefully expend real economic resources to ensure that they (and their children) stay rich. This confirms that once inequality gets going, it will get worse over time – unless we consciously and deliberately stop it.

    Buy the book! (but only if you can handle the humiliation of an act of capitalistic exchange.)

examines class conflict and imperialism in US history
  ritaer | Jul 24, 2021 |
I learned a lot of history, but he was so biased that he could rarely acknowledge the good that was done or the difficulty of change. For example, he criticized the fact that the New Deal compromised excluded farm laborers and nannies because of the fact that blacks held a majority of these positions. I also do not like that these workers were excluded, but if a compromise was not made, then very little of the New Deal laws would have passed and no one would have been helped.

Compromise is never desired, but it is sometimes the only way to get anything done. ( )

A must-read for those who see America as mother and apple pie. But despite throwing light on the downside of our system of government, Zinn is thinn on offering solutions. ( )

nonfiction; American history (by social activist author)
This does provide more info on the sides of history that are not typically found in your highschool textbook, though as the author notes, every history text is inherently biased in what it does and does not include, and there is a definite slant here. Emphasis is on the elite/capitalist oppression of the lower classes, and the ways that resistance and protest has helped to improve things slightly.

Argh, another DNF. I started this in my 20s--while I was visiting family on spring break *right* as the US was invading Iraq in 2003--and should have finished it then, too. So much has happened since. Zinn's work is important, to be sure, but we are also lucky to live in an age where #ownvoices is gaining more and more ground, and I am a little more interested in getting history lessons from marginalized folx.

Covering the period from 1492 practically to the present, this illuminating opus overturns many conventional notions, not just about America's treatment of blacks, but about Native Americans, women, and other disenfranchised groups whose perspectives have traditionally been left out of the education equation.

While some multimillionaires started in poverty, most did not. A study of the origins of 303 textile, railroad and steel executives of the 1870s showed that 90 percent came from middle- or upper-class families. The Horatio Alger stories of "rags to riches" were true for a few men, but mostly a myth, and a useful myth for control. — chapter 11
One percent of the nation owns a third of the wealth. The rest of the wealth is distributed in such a way as to turn those in the 99 percent against one another: small property owners against the propertyless, black against white, native-born against foreign-born, intellectuals and professionals against the uneducated and the unskilled. These groups have resented one another and warred against one another with such vehemence and violence as to obscure their common position as sharers of leftovers in a very wealthy country. — chapter 24
Capitalism has always been a failure for the lower classes. It is now beginning to fail for the middle classes. — chapter 24
