This is going to be a weird edition of What I’ve Been Reading, because it merits quite a bit of discussion, but I also don’t want to do a big, long write-up.

It’s been over a month since I last posted. Oops. I’ll try to get a flurry of year-end posts up over the next few days. We’ll see how productive I can be. Spoiler alert: not very. In any case, enjoy today’s look at class conflict, Rojava, and fandom. More
