Staff Reviews


Managing to blend a Mark Fisher-esque level of intellectual curiosity with his own perfect ratio of comedy and earnestness, Michael Brooks has given us a marauders map of the vampire castle. It's up to us to fight our way out.

*If you got that awful Harry Potter reference but not the vampire castle one, please enjoy this brilliant essay by Mark Fisher.

Description


"A brilliant critique of the Right with very sharp insight on some of the shortcomings of the Left, this book is a must-read for anyone looking to understand how dishonest actors spread their propaganda." Ana Kasparian, Host and Executive Producer of The Young TurksMichael Brooks takes on the new "Intellectual Dark Web." As the host of The Michael Brooks Show and co-host of the Majority Report, Brooks was a progressive fighter whose work brought people together from around the world. In this, his first book, he lets his understanding of the digital media environment direct his analysis of the "conservative rebels" who had taken YouTube by storm in 2018. Brooks provides a theoretically rigorous but accessible critique of the most prominent "renegades" including Sam Harris, Jordan Peterson, and Brett Weinstein while also examining the social, political and media environment that such rebels thrive in.
