Excerpt from 's new mini-movie on books, where I, a full hypocrite, try to scare him into reading more books. 30 minutes of reading a day = 1,000+ books in a lifetime!

And I know, I know, I haven't existed in many months - I will resume existing soon, I promise. And when I do, I'll be dropping 100,000+ words and 1,000+ drawings on your head.

Delightful new mini-movie from on reading (and how we can read more books, faster). For the project, he asked me to help him up his own reading, which I try my best to do about 2 minutes into the video.

. is a good friend of mine—super smart, thoughtful guy. He's been scaring the shit out of me with this research for the past few years, and now it's a book I hope lots of people read/discuss/debate. Would love to hear what WBW readers think about the book's ideas.

Beautiful little essay by my good friend , who is living in the aftermath of an unthinkable tragedy. (And as someone who HAS heard lots of his songs, I can attest that they're better than most of what you'll hear on Broadway.)

I'm talking about any country that falls under the broad category of systems that people colloquially refer to as "democracies." My point is about belief or non-belief in whatever particular democracy-esque system is in place.

That's the rare exception I referred to—but because group B cries Broken Democracy Wolf after every loss, the alarms by both groups when there's a real wolf aren't taken seriously by most people. Part of the danger group B poses.

Same group B, when they're happy with an election result, say stuff like: “Faith in democracy restored!” (i.e. “When I get my way, democracy is working. When I don’t, it’s broken.”) (i.e. “I don’t understand what a democracy is and actually prefer dictatorship.")
