Most every day I try to read something that makes me uncomfortable. Something that challenges my worldview, reminds me of my privilege, prompts me to think about unmet wants and needs of others in the world, or that just helps me step outside of my everyday understanding of how things work.
A few sources I turn to when I want to be uncomfortable include:
- The Drudge Report
- The Nation
- News & discussion of interest to anarchists
- Post Carbon Institute news
- Democracy Now!
- DGR News Service
Sometimes my discomfort turns to anger or sadness, sometimes it turns into ideas, sometimes it even results in action. Most often it's helpful to me, sometimes it's not. But being uncomfortable now and then feels important.
