I recommend American Nightmare by Henry Giroux. We are in unprecedented times

That’s fine, but can you give a synopsis of the book and why you recommend it?

Recommend the short story American Gold Mine by Paulo Bacigalupi in the 2019 September/Oct issue of Magazine of Fantasy and Science Fiction.

Short summary: We follow the live broadcast of a female shock jock who inflames political divisions to gain market share, even as outside the studio a mob of people who hate her is storming the building.
