you should read these

these things fundamentally changed how i think about certain subjects for the better. i hope they do the same for you.

the evolution of trust - how does trust work? how can you help people learn to trust each other? (interactive!)

the wisdom and/or madness of crowds - how does information spread? how can you build networks that help spread good ideas and stop bad ones? (interactive!)

to change everything - most of society's problems have something in common. if you could change anything, what would you change?

recipes for disaster - a handbook for direct action. very good for showing you how many little, concrete ways you take back power in your life, and just, y'know, have fun with it.

crucial conversations - even though it was written much earlier, a great toolkit for unlearning how social media has taught us to talk to people.
