The Body Is Not an Apology, Second Edition: The Power of Radical Self-LoveThe Body Is Not an Apology, Second Edition: The Power of Radical Self-Love
by Sonya Renee Taylor

"To build a world that works for everyone, we must first make the radical decision to love every facet of ourselves. . . . 'The body is not an apology' is the mantra we should all embrace."
—Kimberlé Crenshaw, legal scholar and founder and Executive Director, African American Policy Forum


Humans are a varied and divergent bunch with all manner of beliefs, morals, and bodies. Systems of oppression thrive off our inability to make peace with difference and injure the relationship we have with our own bodies. The Body Is Not an Apology offers radical self-love as the balm to heal the wounds inflicted by these violent systems. World-renowned activist and poet Sonya Renee Taylor invites us to reconnect with the radical origins of our minds and bodies and celebrate our collective, enduring strength. As we awaken to our own indoctrinated body shame, we feel inspired to awaken others and to interrupt the systems that perpetuate body shame and oppression against all bodies. When we act from this truth on a global scale, we usher in the transformative opportunity of radical self-love, which is the opportunity for a more just, equitable, and compassionate world—for us all.

The Hidden History of American Oligarchy: Reclaiming Our Democracy from the Ruling ClassThe Hidden History of American Oligarchy: Reclaiming Our Democracy from the Ruling Class
by Thom Hartmann

Thom Hartmann, the most popular progressive radio host in America and a New York Times bestselling author, looks at the real history of the corrupting influence of oligarchy in America—and how we can fight back.

The history of America (and of all democracies) catalogues the dynamic tension between democracy and oligarchy. Oligarchy usually has the power and the resources, and for this reason democracy has had limited success historically. The most important "stabilizer" that a democracy can build into its own system is one that prevents an oligarchy from taking over—which was an original purpose of the Constitution.
