What to Read: “Whether the Western way of life, and our liberal democratic systems, can survive this dramatic shift of global power is the question of this book. The answer is not entirely in our hands. But our response so far has been to accelerate the shift. Donald Trump’s victory crystallises the West’s failure to come to terms with the reality it faces.” One book can’t explain the world. But this one provides a solid overview of what’s going on right here, right now. The Retreat of Western Liberalism by Edward Luce. (I nodded so much while reading this I almost threw my neck out…)

+ What to Pod: “It was perhaps the most shocking crime the small town had ever seen. Investigators charged a man named Curtis Flowers with the murders. What followed was a two-decade legal odyssey in which Flowers was tried six times for the same crime. He remains on death row, though some people believe he’s innocent.” Yes, you read that right. Six times. And each time, the same prosecutor brought the case. For a riveting look at a bizarre case, check out APM’s latest podcast: In the Dark.

+ What to Wear: We’ve got shirts, we’ve got hats, we’ve got stickers. Check out the new NextDraft Store.
