Friday’s Reading List

By Taylor Marvin

Marianne von Werefkin, “Rote Stadt”, 1909. Via WIkimedia.

What I read this week:

Joshua Foust makes a lot of sense on Pussy Riot and celebrity slacktivism.

Repression, dissent, and the onset of civil war.

The story of WikiLeaks, once an exciting tale of overcoming government secrecy and empowering online activists and journalists, is now a story primarily concerned with the vagaries of diplomatic immunity, British-Ecuadorean relations, and Swedish rape laws.”

Gender, norms and survival in maritime disasters (via Tyler Cowen).

Liberal democracy is viable, but can we do better?

Assessing Iran’s nuclear goals – and assessing the assessors.

Are ‘waterworlds’ planets in transition?
