On the occasion of Thanksgiving, I finished David Stannard's "American Holocaust", a seminal work about the genocides of the Americas, and wrote up my thoughts.
In short, I highly recommend the book -- it was published in 1992, but remains a remarkable work of historical scholarship that draws from countless sources to present a comprehensive picture of what happened, and why it happened. Here's my review:
social.coop is a cooperatively-run corner of the Fediverse. The instance is democratically governed by its members, who generally share an interest in the co-op model, but topics of discussion range widely.
Our instance is supported by sliding scale contributions of $1-10/mo made via Open Collective. You must have an active Open Collective account to apply for membership; you may set one up here
