FromNew York Times bestselling author Cory Doctorow,Radicalized is four urgent SF novellas of America's present and future within one book Told through one of the most on-pulse genre voices of our generation,Radicalized is a timely collection consisting of four SF novellas connected by social, technological, and economic visions of today and what America could be in the near, near future. Unauthorized Bread is a tale of immigration, the toxicity of economic and technological stratification, and the young and downtrodden fighting against all odds to survive and prosper. InModel Minority, a Superman-like figure attempts to rectifiy the corruption of the police forces he long erroneously thought protected the defenseless...only to find his efforts adversely affecting their victims. Radicalized is a story of a darkweb-enforced violent uprising against insurance companies told from the perspective of a man desperate to secure funding for an experimental drug that could cure his wife's terminal cancer. The fourth story,Masque of the Red Death, harkens back to Doctorow'sWalkaway, taking on issues of survivalism versus community.… (mais)

Meh

There were a couple decent concepts in here, but badly written and embedded within basically parody-level SJW trolling. Blissfully each was only novella length, but there were 4 of them. ( )

Liberal power fantasy of I told you so. Although I imagine DRM bread is happening soon enough. We already had DRM juice. Painfully didactic. ( )

I didn't like this.
It was heavy handed which I expected.
I liked Unauthorized Bread though it was somewhat slow.
Model Minority and Radicalized together ironically support white supremacy. Even Unauthorized Bread does as it encourages POC immigrants to quietly and peacefully circumvent a system that is using them for unpaid labor.
In Model Minority we have white guilt ahistorically explaining how siding with Black people against white supremacy causes their whiteness to be called into question.
John Brown proves this is bullshit.
Brown killed white men in defense of Black and in a bid to end slavery.
His whiteness was never, ever questioned.
So no, that's not how the construct of race works.
White men don't get involved even when they know it's wrong because they appreciate what white supremacy gives them and they don't wish to see that challenged. Oh they dress this desire up but it remains the main reason white men don't challenge racism. Not just white men either.
53% of white women voted for chump against their own interests. Why?
To protect white supremacy.
It's unpalatable but also facts.
The other unpalatable aspect of this story is it's attachment to violence against the Black body. He reinforces that the victim of police brutality is 'the Black man' until it grated on my fucking nerves. Meanwhile after establishing that the cops brutalizing the victim were white, he never mentions it again. They are just cops brutalizing 'the Black man'. It's cringey as fuck ( )

A collection of 4 novellas, all superb. This might actually be my favorite Doctorow book to date, and I quite like him generally. The stories variously investigate the proliferation of DRM, systematic racism in America through the lens of Superman, and the limits of doomsday prepping—but it's the title story that shook me the most, about the development of a terrorist organization targeting medical-pharmaceutical-political complex. It's a scary look at how online radicalization works, and what's really scary is less how plausible it is and more how it leaves you feeling, "gee, this actually might be a good idea." ( )

These four smart and disarming speculative shorts were not easy to get through, but that's why I consider them to be necessary to get through. Doctorow unflinchingly describes the scale of injustice and discomfort that millions of "others" experience on a daily basis and is able to demonstrate through discrete, punchy and concise cautionary tales (à la Falling Down and Black Mirror) what happens when those unthinkable institutional biases finally affect the privileged – as they eventually do and will continue to do at an increasingly rapid pace. Reading these stories in the middle of summer 2020 disturbingly underscores how close we actually are to the dystopian fabric of Doctorow's prose; the collection's subtitle Four Tales of Our Present Moment could not have been more prescient as we navigate breaking crests of tidal capitalism, racism, classism, and the other jury-rigged sawhorses struggling to bolster the world's rotting nation-states. On more than one night I found it difficult to sleep for the weight of words and the clarity of structure with which he describes our calamity of inequity. That's what these stories were designed to do. It doesn't matter if you don't "like" them; sometimes the allegorical truth is – mildly or wildly, depending upon one's level of agency – uncomfortable. Knowledge here is power, and, as Doctorow signs off in his acknowledgments, "This isn't the kind of fight you win, it's the kind of fight you fight." ( )
