Who Goes Nazi? | Harper's Magazine

Who Goes Nazi? | Harper's Magazine

AdjustSharet is an interesting and somewhat macabre parlor game to play at a large gathering of one’s acquaintances: to speculate who in a showdown would go Nazi. By now, I think I know. I have gone through the experience many times—in Germany, in Austria, and in France. I have come to know the types: the born Nazis, the Nazis whom democracy itself has created, the certain-to-be fellow-travelers. And I also know those who never, under any conceivable circumstances, would become Nazis.It is preposterous to think that they are divided by any racial characteristics. Germans may be more...

A bone-piercing cold swept through my hotel room in Srinagar. The next morning, the radiator, the water heater, and all the light switches were useless things.

How Google, Amazon, and Facebook control our livesIllustrations by Doug Chayka. Source images © iStockHow Google, Amazon, and Facebook control our livesFrom theAdjustSharePopular histories present the Boston Tea Party as a rebellion against taxes. Yet what the colonists objected to more than anything was the idea of an all-powerful corporate middleman regulating commerce. They viewed the 1773 protest in Boston Harbor as a victory for liberty and a blow against the British East India Company’s trade monopoly.That corporation owed its dominance not to any proprietary advantage but to an...

[Report] Bad News, By Joseph Bernstein

[Report] Bad News, By Joseph Bernstein

Selling the story of disinformationIllustrations by Dan BejarSelling the story of disinformationAdjustShareIn the beginning, there were ABC, NBC, and CBS, and they were good. Midcentury American man could come home after eight hours of work and turn on his television and know where he stood in relation to his wife, and his children, and his neighbors, and his town, and his country, and his world. And that was good. Or he could open the local paper in the morning in the ritual fashion, taking his civic communion with his coffee, and know that identical scenes were unfolding in households...

[Miscellany] The Crow Whisperer, By Lauren Markham | Harper's Magazine

What happens when we talk to animals?Linocuts by Jonathan Gibbs for Harper's MagazineWhat happens when we talk to animals?From theAdjustShareWhen the crow whisperer appeared at the side gate to Adam Florin and Dani Fisher’s house, in Oakland, California, she was dressed head to toe in black, wearing a hoodie, gloves, and a mask. This was a few weeks into the coronavirus lockdown, so Adam initially took her garb to be a sign of precautionary vigilance. In fact, it was a disguise. “It’s so the crows don’t recognize me and—no offense—start associating me with you.”Adam found this odd, but he...
