This week on YA, We Read It! Laura and Meggie are joined by Arthur Howell (creator of 2 Cents Critic blog & podcast) for a lovely stroll into the fifth Maze Runner book. Following the story of how the maze got made, we focus on Thomas, our protagonist once again, and his life under Wicked's roof from early childhood to his teens. Teresa and him become fast friends and meet the other Gladers over the years ultimately until the maze is completed and they fully realize how bad Wicked actually is. The Fever Code works hard to answer all the questions from the original trilogy (yet arguably leaves us with more questions, but hey! who's counting?) as it flashes through the years up until Thomas' first day in the maze.

I'm Christy Shriver and we're here to discuss books that have changed the world and have changed us. I'm Garry Shriver and this is the How to Love lit Podcast. This is our third episode in our four part series on Aldous Huxley's negative utopia Brave New World. In episode 1, we met Huxley and toured London's Central Hatchery, covering chapters 1 and 2. In episode 2, we discussed chapters 3-5 meeting two characters from the novel. I want to point out that they are main characters, and when they were introduced, I expected them to be heroes, but these two are definitely not heroic- Bernard Marx and Lenina Crowne. Through the first five chapters we accompany them on an average evening, an average evening for everyone in the brave new world- not just for them- and average evening in this world consists of two things- soma-taking and sex. Now in episode 3 we accompany these two as they cross the Atlantic to the American continent and then return in chapters 6-11. They bring back with them a character who comes closest to being a hero, he comes closest to being us, John Savage from the reservation. Our plan today is to explore primitive life on the reservation and the contrasts Huxley creates for us as well as watch John the Savage as he interacts with the Brave New World on his return. Christy, before we get into that I want to revisit a few important ideas from earlier episodes. As we think about how Huxley drew these standardized humans, and their lives, it's more and more obvious that Huxley, himself, is not advocating for life a comfortable and happy life, at least in the way he defines these terms. Comfortable meaning no anxiety; happy meaning full of distractions and entertainment. No, we have to read this entire book as irony- everything he is defending is the opposite of what he's describing. It's what makes this book confusing to many readers. The farther we get into the chapters, the more bitter the irony- even positive words like hygienic and beautiful and happy are used by Huxley to make us question if even these are really good things at all. One place to pay attention is when reading how the characters talk to and about each other. What we see is that there is zero sense of what we consider to be meaningful relationship. They talk about each other and to each other as if they were merchandise, or to use Huxley's term- meat- dead or alive. Huxley as a student of biology and psychology really pushes the scientific boundaries and even our imaginations to the limits. He asks how far will society, or the power structure of our world go when it comes to psychological manipulation through conditioning? Are there ethical limits or boundaries in the messages we hear from political or commercial leadership- and Huxley does not really see that there is a difference between these two. And not just through repetition and peer pressure but also through government/cultural sanctioned drug use and sexual behaviors. All of this, of course always expressed as being for the common good. Not even the world leaders in a Brave New World have nefarious motives. There is no obvious villain, no Hitler or Stalin out there murdering innocent people. The government is doing everything in the name of general good, and yet, we, as readers are made to question if this is really the case. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

You might be thinking The Kill Order would refer to a particular ranking of who needs to die and when, but after reading this book we can assure you it's not that! This week Meggie and Laura are joined by their dear friend Nate Todd in this very special episode of reading James Dashner's prequel. Long before the maze trials, Solar Flares ravaged the Earth and threatened humanity as we know it. And through a few bad calls by the government The Flare was unleashed on what little survivors were left, and, well, you know this ends poorly because this is a prequel.

Sometimes people write books that are as important as they are good. The Nede Rising series by Jess Corban fits that description perfectly. Corban boldly takes a look at the logical conclusion of our current anti-male sentiment if allowed to continue unchecked, and results both in a riveting story and a chilling warning. Listen in to learn why I think they were the two most important fiction books I read last year. Note: links may be affiliate links that provide me with a small commission at no extra expense to you. Which Two Books Are The Most Important That I Read Last Year? Jess Corban's Nede Rising is a duology that I took far too long to read. Starting with A Gentle Tyranny, the series explores a dystopian world created for the purpose of eradicating masculinity. The result? Chilling. I chatted with Jess about the Nede Rising series in Episode 115 (not 150 like I said!) and she graciously sent me a set of the books. I hadn't gotten through the first book before I purchased a set myself and sent it on to #1daughter. One of the most important aspects shown in A Gentle Tyranny is how solving one problem by recreating it in reverse (or going even further with the problem as the Nede do) is not a valid solution. That said, these women do just that. In a competition reminiscent of The Hunger Games (without the fight to the death for all aspect), Reina competes to succeed her grandmother as Matriarch of the Nede. But what she learns starts a journey of discovery, decision, and ultimately faith in more than their society. Book two, A Brutal Justice, continues this story as more of a continuation rather than a sequel. To get the full story, you must read both, and wow. What a duo! I went into both books without an agenda. As always, I'm predisposed to like a book until an author gives me a reason not to--Corban only made me love the series more with every page. Let's just hope she writes more books along the lines of Nede Rising. A Gentle Tyranny (Book One of Nede Rising) What if women unraveled the evils of patriarchy? With men safely "gentled" in a worldwide Liberation, the matriarchy of Nedé has risen from the ashes. Seventeen-year-old Reina Pierce has never given a thought to the Brutes of old. Itching to escape her mother's finca--and desperate to keep her training and forbidden friendship a secret--her greatest worry is which Destiny she'll choose on her next birthday. But when she's selected as a candidate for the Succession instead, competing to become Nedé's ninth Matriarch, she discovers their Eden has come at a cost she's not sure she's willing to pay. Jess Corban's debut novel presents a new twist to the dystopian genre, delivering heart-pounding action, thought-provoking revelations, and a setting as lush as the jungles of Central America. A Brutal Justice (Book Two of Nede Rising) Protect the weak. Safety for all. Power without virtue is tyranny. Nedé has a new Apprentice, and now Reina Pierce must come to grips with what she sacrificed to secure Matriarch Teera's favor. As secrets unfold and danger mounts, Reina tests the bounds of trust and be forced to answer the question that has haunted her since her first night in the jungle: Which is better—Gentle or Brute? And how far will she go to ensure tyranny is eradicated from Nedé? In this fast-paced conclusion to the Nedé Rising series, A Brutal Justice weaves action, romance, and provocative questions into a finale that readers won't be able to put down.

A dystopian transhumanist rewrite of global society and the future of humanity, penned by a tyrannical New World Order: the Great Reset. With the onset of Covid-19 and all that has played out since early 2020, Big Pharma and High Tech have seized our lives in the most evil of ways. They do not intend to let go, until their nightmare agenda to merge human beings with Artificial Intelligence-Human 2.0-has revolutionized everything about our lives, enslaved us and possessed our world. It isn't a “theory” anymore – it's a global conspiracy. How do they achieve this malevolent goal? First, they must hack the God Code to remove the light within us: the Divine Blueprint. Then, they can splice into our DNA any code, messenger or numerical mark they deem superior to our natural, God given essence, and steal our souls.

So, let's get started, first, it's important to note that this book was published in the UK in 1931. So, for context, let's think about what was happening or really what hadn't happened yet in Europe or the rest of the world. The book is pre-Hitler, pre-Stalin, pre-internet, pre-mass-media, pre-social engineering, he predates a lot of the things that define what we call the modern world, yet you might not think that just reading it. It pre-dates Orwell's 1984, too. That book wasn't written until…1948…yes, he just switched the numbers there. So much of the science in this book had to seem so strange and futuristic at the time. For example, DNA wouldn't even be discovered until 1958. In-vitro fertilization wouldn't be invented until 1971, yet Huxley's book opens with test-tube babies, a term all of us have heard of today. I'm also sure a world where all people are on psychiatric drugs also seemed far-fetched in 1931; today, one in six Americans self-report regularly taking a psychiatric drug, and that number is likely just a fraction of the reality if you consider all the different variations of both legal and illegal and semi-legal forms available today. Huxley's Brave New World is about achieving happiness. It's about total sexual liberation. It's about the exaltation of science over faith and religion. It's about an entirely efficient and centralized government worldwide that fabricates “peace on earth good will towards men”, to quote the Biblical phrase and the stated purpose of the coming of Jesus Christ as announced by the angels at Christmas. And yet, even the title Brave New World reeks of irony. Every single person in this Brave New World is undeniably happy; that is never questioned, yet we're left with the feeling that maybe even happiness really isn't always good. Huxley's Brave New World is a comfortable world. There is no violence, no rule by fear, like in Orwell's novels. There is no illness or aging…in fact, it is a world genetically engineered to preclude unhappiness or anxiety of any kind. The goal of achieving unending and unlimited pleasure for all has been achieved….and yet, as we read it, it feels wrong. We get a sense that we wouldn't like living this reality, but why? We feel something has been lost, and Huxley asks us to ask ourselves- what? It's satire. It mocks us, and the irony wears on us as we go through the story. Remember, the word irony means opposite, in other words, we feel that things should be the opposite as how they are described as being. Christy, we talked about satire with Johnathan Swift, with Orwell and with Bradbury, but let's define what that is. If you say something is satirical, I immediately expect it to be funny, but there's nothing funny in this book. Hosted on Acast. See acast.com/privacy for more information.

San Francisco's taxpayer-funded open air Christmas market, hoped to be a wholesome holiday outing for families, is in fact a dystopian hellhole besieged by the city's famed drug addicts.At least that's what concerned residents living near the market have revealed to DailyMail.com, with one property owner filming and posting to social media what she's described to be a 'horrible decline' in the area.Her clip shows a homeless person under a blanket just a few yards away from the Winter Wanderland market in the sunken Hallidie Plaza, near City Hall.The camera then pans down to the market itself, where two people dressed as cuddly characters perform on a small stage. Our camerawoman then zooms off to the left, and films a man swigging from what appears to be a bottle of brown liquor. The 'Winter Wanderland' has been set up at Union Square in downtown San Francisco, just minutes from the now closed Tenderloin Linkage Center. It was set up to help addicts get clean, but DailyMail.com soon revealed widespread illegal drug use had been taking place.The footage filmed by the concerned mother of two is in stark contrast to promotional material posted by the organizers of the holiday market on social media channels, who described the event as 'family friendly.'Support the showSign Up For Exclusive Episodes At: https://reasonabletv.com/LIKE & SUBSCRIBE for new videos every day. https://www.youtube.com/c/NewsForReasonablePeople

這幾天在準備回顧 2022 年;第一集是講中國和俄羅斯。拍片之後,我想到了一些事情可以在這裡補充;但入正題前,請容許我咬文嚼字。除非你是甚麼政治學者,否則你可能會覺得「獨裁」、「專制」和「極權」,是互通的幾個詞。獨裁,就是由一個,又或者兩三個人人,把持一切決定。由於權力太過集中,有人甚至認為,天下間根本不可能有真正的獨裁。任何統治都是要一群人去做,那就是專制。人類有史以來,都是專制。錢穆甚至曾經提出,古代中國不是獨裁,而是專制;由一小撮有同樣背景的人,把持所有決定。以上所提到的「同樣背景的人」,可以因血緣、種族、語言等,但也可以是純粹後天的身份;例如是某個黨的黨員,又或者是某個宗教的神職人員。專制,不一定是極權。甚至乎可以說,多數人都覺得,某程度的專制可以接受;尤其是當他們自己本身就是統治階層的一員;也有些人稱呼統治階層的成員做精英。極權,是完全另一個層次的控制。最極致的,是社會各個方面都完全控制,包括經濟、教育、媒體和私生活。另外,極權統治者的典型特徵是,擁有絕對權力,不受任何「外部勢力」束縛;所以在國際關係中,極權統治者一定要做「話事人」。否則,做不到「話事人」也要做「對頭人」。對內,極權統治者要人民絕對服從。宣傳、審查和恐嚇,都是慣用手段;異議更是必遭壓制。極權主義,亦會有一套無論如何都能夠自圓其說的意識形態。至於專制社會,會用利益去收買群眾;只要沒有直接威脅到精英的利益,專制社會只需要維持某程度的尊卑之分,而不用絕對的服從。假如用 George Orwell 的兩本名著去做類比,Animal Farm 所描繪的是一個專制社會,而 1984 的世界就是個極權的「反烏托邦」(Dystopian)。過去三十幾年,神奇國度似乎是由專制走向極權;尤其過去幾年,這個情況更加明顯。「為何要這樣細分?反正都是不民主,不是嗎?」歷史上,專制是常態。假如說十四億人的神奇國度是專制社會;那是正常不過的事,沒有有甚麼值得大驚小怪。但是極權統治卻是很難維持。不要忘記,天下間任何一個選擇都意味背後有一定代價;而極權統治,每個選擇的代價更是可以很大,也就是很高的管治成本。大家如果記得在 1984 當中,第一幕就是所有人都要對著電視機做運動,做得不夠落力,是為被責罰的,可以想像這種社會工程有多大的成本嗎?其他的監控維穩統戰,全部都是成本。當然,最終付出代價的,往往是社會最低層的人;不論是甚麼社會體制模式,亦如是。大家其實都心知肚明這一點,所以很多人其實不反抗專制,尤其當他們相信自己有機會晉身精英階層,當「人上人」。之前在另一篇文章有提到 Dunbar Number;人類學家對靈長類動物研究時發現,腦袋的運算能力,限制了我們可以應付的人際關係有多複雜。人類嘛,最多就只可以處理約 150 人。換句話說,我們生活裡面家人、親友、同事、朋友等,真的同屬於一個群體的人數,上限約莫就是 150 。「不對呀?那政權有幾千萬黨員呀。」無錯,當你想細想,就會發覺這個組織,有些設計還是頗為科學;例如他們的最高權力核心,政治局常委,是七個人。近代的心理學有個假說,就是所謂「七加或減二法則」,即是一個有效的小團體中,人數由五至九人不等。當然,不是說那個黨很刻意要用科學去設計他們的體制,但可以見到,神奇國度再神奇,也不可能違法基本的自然法則。在塔尖的政治局常委 7 人,由政治局委員是 24 人「選出」;政治局的 24 人,由 205 人的中央委員「選出」。205 人的中共中央委員,就是國度裡掌握了實權的人。當中又可以大概分成三批,中央、地方和軍隊。205 人的三個分支,每個系統其實也是幾十人左右;仍然在 150 人的限數之內。中央委員會裡面,又有不同的「工作小組」;工作小組大概也是按「七加或減二法則」去設置決策委員,指揮轄下機關。許多工作小組的成員,是重複的;這不只是架床疊屋的問題。更重要問題是,當極少人數要作出大多數決定,而他們掌握的資訊又極有限,結果很多決定都不能顧及「執行」和「被執行」者的現實情況。最終為了向上交差,往往用到威迫利誘,也衍生出以上所講管治成本高的問題,順帶一提,自從擔任香港行政長官之後,李家超嘗試將以上所提到的「工作小組」模式引入。但香港本來已經有一套行政的思維,刻意將中共的一套移植到香港的官僚體制,又會否出現器官排斥呢?二,以上所講在管理學中,是 span of control 的問題,而另一個維度就是 chain of command 的長短。假如是個只有幾個人的組織,權力集中或者會比分散有效;尤其是當效率是首要考慮。但當體制龐大,權力集中令到 chain of command 變得更長,另一個問題就是 communication breakdown。以神奇國教的頂層結構作參考,視乎涉及的範疇,由最高到最基層的執行,最少也有五層至七層。玩過 Telephone Game 就知道,一個訊息經過三傳,四傳之後就已經嚴重失真。而且這裡提的層,只是很粗略的階級區分,而不是實際溝通時涉及的人數。可以想像,在現實情況下,一個政策由上而下的傳達,到執行的時候,就只有最基層都能夠明白的指令,例如清零。「這種管理問題到處都有,為何在極權和專制社會的問題會更嚴重?」極權社會的問題,是資訊沒有透明度。明明掌握了在地資訊的,卻沒有權做決定;層層而上之後做的決定,幾乎可以肯定不是最前線所最著緊,又或者最可行。任何正常的管理,都會建議權力下放。但極權政府不能放權。所以,當權力不能下放,由上而下的 one-size-fit-all 的指令,往往就只可以是方向性的。無傷大雅的小事,結局就是「做咗當得咗」。不過,一旦涉及到具體執行的方法,指令就變成不顧一切代價的硬指令。清零,就是硬指令。住房不炒,就是沒有具體的「講咗當做咗」。以上兩種都同屬 communication breakdown。甚至有人認為,世間不可能有真正的極權統治,正如沒有真正的獨裁。另外,專制社會快要窒息的時候,為了生存,偶爾也會鬆一鬆。結果就是大家見到的周期現象:一放就亂,一亂就收,一收就死,一死又放。或者中共的夢想是演變成一個不會犯錯的極權社會;但現實中,是沒有可能由核心到外圍,仍然能夠鉅細無遺地監管十四億人每日的生活。越是甚麼都要管的極權統治,其實就製造越多漏洞;畢竟,每件事其實都可以視為 205 人與十四億鬥智鬥力。現代社會一個很重要的發明,就是官僚體制,但也有人認為,傳統中國社會就已經有官僚,例如唐律和科舉。但別忘了,在人類歷史上,很多概念都是在不同地方各自演化。官僚的極致,就是每個決定都是有規有舉,彷彿由機器人去做;官僚在處理已知的問題,可以很有效。所以,最能代表官僚文化的文具,就是圖章;官僚能夠表達的訊息,都應該是預先設計好的。所以,當官僚面對未知的事物,往往是不知所措;當指令不具體時,這些人肉機器亦不懂得自己要執行甚麼。法治和官僚體系是相輔相成的;偏偏在神奇國度,不少規則都是非正式的,對規則的解釋權,也是掌握在少數人的手上。正如以上所提到,集權不見得令神奇國度的決策質素更佳;決策很多時根本不能執行,又或者代價極高。集權越嚴重,越來越多政策不能被執行。就連香港本來高效的官僚,過去幾年都因為沒有自主,所以很多事情都做不出來。問題不只是人選的問題,而是整個決策的機制根本脫離現實;本身已經是一個死症。至於中國大陸裡面,情況也不會好到那裡。甚至乎,俄軍的作戰能力完全露底,軍備亦落。今年八月 Pelosi 訪台後,解放軍只可以用射導彈落海來宣洩情緒。軍演本來是要向其他國家展示作戰應變能力,而不是武器有多強大。人類早就有可以令生靈塗炭的大殺傷力武器;甚麼坦克大炮導彈,還有甚麼可怕?不方便的真相是,解放軍除了這些,就沒有能力組織更複雜的事。究竟中共知不知自己有以上的體制缺陷?我相信他們比任何人都更清楚問題所在。但對於政權,它的重點是要繼續執政,而不是改變這些問題。以上除了是政治,其實也是基本管理學。當然,知道應該怎樣去管理,和最終你可以選擇怎樣去管理,是兩回事。很多人身在體制中,也是無可奈何。如果未加入會員專享的討論區,可以循以下這個連結加入至於今日的 YouTube ,亦希望可以給大家在主流以外的一些另類觀點: This is a public episode.

We talk about longtime pod-favorite Shatter Me by Tahereh Mafi.  We love her writing style and how she manages to convey the main character's mental and emotional state in a unique way.  We're intrigued about where the series is going.  We're not sure if we should love the love interest or hate the bad guy.  And we have differing opinions on Dystopian stories as a genre.

Dystopian fiction has been something of a trend for the last decade. But two new books by Portland authors put an almost humorous spin on the genre. Jon Raymond's “Denial” is set in a future that looks very much like our own, but after a global reckoning on the dangers of climate change and the fossil fuel industry. His characters stumble through the problems of an ordinary life - illness, love, - while grappling with the question of who is to blame for the problems of the world we have all created. In Mat Johnson's “Invisible Things,” a spaceship exploring Jupiter discovers a suburban American city populated by 17th century settlers and later abductees. The residents live in a starkly divided world, where half the population denies basic reality. John Notarianni talks to Raymond and Johnson about their books.

Madeline Lane-McKinley, "Comedy Against Work: Utopian Longing in Dystopian Times" (Common Notions, 2022)

Comedy is so frequently the topic of cultural dialogue, but it is rarely taken seriously as an object of study. Comedy Against Work: Utopian Longing in Dystopian Times (Common Notions, 2022) offers a major contribution to theorizing comedy but also thinking about the particular politics of the genre today. Work is a joke and often the butt of our jokes. Madeline Lane-McKinley argues that in comedy, we find ways to endure and cope with the world of work, but also to question the conditions of capitalist life. When work is slowly killing us and destroying the planet and, at the same time, something impossible to imagine life without, Lane-McKinley considers the possibility of comedy as a revolutionary practice. By appealing to laughter we can counteract many of our shared miseries under capitalism, including our relationship to work.  But to think through these revolutionary aspects of comedy, as a practice, also involves troubling comedy's relationship to the global right turn of the last decade. Stand-up comedy's claims to the artistic freedom of hate speech in comedy represent a fascistic current of our world today, blurring the boundaries between left and "alt" right. Against this current, Comedy Against Work draws from a tradition of feminist critical utopianism, Marxist-feminism, and contemporary cultural criticism to reflect on an anti-fascist poetics of comedy, grounded in a critique of work. In this conversation with host Annie Berke, Dr. Lane-McKinley discusses the origins of her project, her decision to include her own story and life in her academic analysis, and the comedic virtuosity of the feminist killjoy. Madeline Lane-McKinley is a writer, professor, and Marxist-feminist with a PhD in Literature from the University of California, Santa Cruz. She is a founding member of Blind Field: A Journal of Cultural Inquiry. Her writing has appeared in publications such as Los Angeles Review of Books, Boston Review, The New Inquiry, Entropy, GUTS, and Cultural Politics. She is also the author of the chapbook Dear Z and a contributor to The Museum of Capitalism. Annie Berke is the Film Editor at the Los Angeles Review of Books and author of Their Own Best Creations: Women Writers in Postwar Television (University of California Press, 2022). Her scholarship and criticism has been published in Feminist Media Histories, Public Books, Literary Hub, The A.V. Club, and The Washington Post.

Host Jason Henrichs kicks today's episode off with song — it's not to be missed and neither are the conversations with Michael Kitces, Nerd's Eye View and then Theodora Lau, Unconventional Ventures. The markets are a bit frightful and there is strain on individuals and financial service providers. Our guests address the role of technology and empathy. Michael covers the role tech plays in financial planning. Much has been said of robo-advisors but there are parts of the process and the trusted advisor relationship that can't be digitized. Tech makes you efficient but advice delivery, expertise and deep financial advisor relationships can't be automated. Tech doesn't supplant the human, it augments the human relationship, the right combination changing individual trajectories. Money is emotional and current situations have people stressed. Theo addresses empathy. People need help managing money; many don't have the right data, tools to take action, and lack discipline. Debt is going up and, with record inflation, savings are dwindling. A recent Tik Tok trend shows younger generations budgeting the way the Greatest Generation did...a.k.a. the envelope method. How do we help people understand implications before it's too late? We need to keep learning, Tech and empathy-- opposite ends of the spectrum -- are they at odds?
