a friend talking about @pluralistic's new book The Lost Cause:

"Fucking great book though, both hate and love this vision for the future. Very motivating, is this just how you feel all the time? Insane"

Has anyone read Doctorow's new book "The lost cause" yet?

IMO it's as fuck, though it's not the cozy feel-good, post-problem-solarpunk but rather the gritty, traumatic kind. Still, it's full of hope, solidarity and people being there for each other.

I liked it a lot and ripped through it in a single weekend (though I'm not sure it tops walkaway for me).

@lex @alxd i think it can plausibly be seen as a prequel to walkaway even if @pluralistic didn't intend it that way. not sure either way. it just feels like it's clearly able to dovetail into the walkaway future nicely
