Here's another one, brought to me by the good dudes of the Horror Vanguard podcast: David McNally's "Monsters of the Market: Zombies, Vampires, and Global Capitalism." Easy, clear reading.

Funny how many so-called "Centrists" or "apolitical" people complain about how a leftist or antifa being mean to them online pushed them all the way to the right, but no one ever talk about how all the murders and shootings and terrorism from white supremacists and other Fascists pushed them even slightly to the left. It's almost as if they're just right-wingers looking for thin excuses to justify their bullshit, or something!
