politics/economics reading 

I was especially fascinated by Fisher's explanation of how anti-capitalism reinforces this view of capitalism. Media representations of evil corporations and impending environmental destruction can ease our moral urge to do something about it.

We have to take this seriously if we want to actually build a better society and not just complain about an existing social order.

Just read Capitalist Realism by Mark Fisher. It's a short book about how we are so accustomed to capitalist ideology that we often can't see any future without it. The culture surrounding it permeates the world around us in the little ways that we don't even realize.
