In a culture of outrage and siloing, social media is the go-to place to attack and to hide. Users rant and vent, and they huddle in like-minded silos. Social media encourages impulsive and angry responses to tweets or posts that irritate us. It also allows us to avoid challenges to our conventional wisdom. We can block, unfriend, and hunker down in private groups. Social media has so far aggravated, rather than helped to cure, ideological polarization and partisanship. Is there a higher and better use? Facebook is the largest forum in the history of humankind for free and open communication among citizens. It can be used to engage in meaningful conversations about important political, social, and economic issues. The choice is ours to make. As is demonstrated in Jeff Rasley´s latest book, ´´regular folks” can use their social networks for civil discussion and debate, and then for positive political action. Or, they can follow the lead of President Trump to tweet insults and ridicule political opponents. Who do we want to be as a nation? The Case for Civility exposes the causes and effects of hyper-partisanship. It offers a ´´modest proposal´´ to treat the symptoms of toxic polarization using social media. An experiment in Facebook based on the values of civility, tolerance, pragmatism, and moderation proves there is a cure. Rasley is the author of nine other books, including Godless - Living a Valuable Life Beyond Beliefs and Bringing Progress to Paradise, a memoir about adventure and philanthropy in the Nepal Himalayas. 1.

Trump Toons features a look at President Trump in cartoons. It combines a collection of 30 all-time favorite cartoons from several earlier books. These include Trump Is an Animal!, comparing Trump to male animals fighting for power, women, and territory; Trump Is Nuts!, comparing Trump to a variety of nuts from peanuts to cashews and pecans, and Trump Is Extinct…or May Be Soon! comparing Trump to extinct animals from prehistorical fish and dinosaurs to early humans. Trump Toons takes the best of these cartoons and combines them with some short snappy copy used in a social media campaign to promote this book. The book is part of a series featured in the Who Is Trump Really? Facebook page devoted to a humorous take on the Trump presidency. It’s an approach inspired by the late night comics like Stephen Colbert, Seth Meyers, John Oliver, Bill Maher, Samantha Bee, and the show Saturday Night Live.PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio. 1.

In Zeiten von Fakenews wird es Zeit für die Wahrheit Donald Trump ist ein Präsident der zeigt, dass das Land der unbegrenzten Möglichkeiten auch nach unten keine Grenzen kennt. Vom Tellerwäscher zum Millionär funktioniert nunmal auch umgekehrt, das betrifft nicht nur das Finanzielle sondern auch das intellektuelle Niveau. Jeder Comiczeichner erblasst vor Neid vor der real gewordenen Mischung zwischen Hulk und Donald Duck. Warum musste es dazu kommen? War es der russische Geheimdienst, Facebook oder einfach nur Pech? Wir wissen es nicht, aber ohne ihn wäre diese Doppel-CD niemals entstanden. So zeigt sich, dass es auch im Schlechten noch was Gutes gibt. Immerhin! (2 CDs, Laufzeit: ca. 2h 20)

The New York Times best seller about a noted tech venture capitalist, early mentor to Mark Zuckerberg, and Facebook investor, who wakes up to the serious damage Facebook is doing to our society - and sets out to try to stop it. If you had told Roger McNamee even three years ago that he would soon be devoting himself to stopping Facebook from destroying our democracy, he would have howled with laughter. He had mentored many tech leaders in his illustrious career as an investor, but few things had made him prouder, or been better for his fund´s bottom line, than his early service to Mark Zuckerberg. Still a large shareholder in Facebook, he had every good reason to stay on the bright side. Until he simply couldn´t. Zucked is McNamee´s intimate reckoning with the catastrophic failure of the head of one of the world´s most powerful companies to face up to the damage he is doing. It´s a story that begins with a series of rude awakenings. First there is the author´s dawning realization that the platform is being manipulated by some very bad actors. Then there is the even more unsettling realization that Zuckerberg and Sheryl Sandberg are unable or unwilling to share his concerns, polite as they may be to his face. And then comes the election of Donald Trump and the emergence of one horrific piece of news after another about the malign ends to which the Facebook platform has been put. To McNamee´s shock, even still Facebook´s leaders duck and dissemble, viewing the matter as a public relations problem. Now thoroughly alienated, McNamee digs into the issue and fortuitously meets up with some fellow travelers who share his concern and help him sharpen its focus. Soon he and a dream team of Silicon Valley technologists are charging into the fray, to raise consciousness about the existential threat of Facebook and the persuasion architecture of the attention economy more broadly - to our public health and to our political o 1.

It has been called the political crime of the century: a foreign government, led by a brutal authoritarian leader, secretly interfering with the American presidential election to help elect the candidate of its choice. Now, two-time Pulitzer Prize-winning Washington Post national security reporter Greg Miller investigates the truth about the Kremlin’s covert attempt to destroy Hillary Clinton and help Donald Trump win the presidency, Trump’s steadfast allegiance to Vladimir Putin, and Robert Mueller’s ensuing investigation of the president and those close to him.Based on interviews with hundreds of people in Trump’s inner circle, current and former government officials, individuals with close ties to the White House, members of the law enforcement and the intelligence communities, foreign officials, and confidential documents, The Apprentice offers striking new information about the hacking of the Democrats by Russian intelligence; Russian hijacking of Facebook and Twitter; National Security Adviser Michael Flynn’s hidden communications with the Russians; the attempt by Jared Kushner, Trump’s son-in-law, to create a secret backchannel to Moscow using Russian diplomatic facilities; Trump’s disclosure to Russian officials of highly classified information about Israeli intelligence operations; Trump’s battles with the CIA and the FBI and fierce clashes within the West Wing; Trump’s efforts to enlist the director of national intelligence and the director of the National Security Agency to push back against the FBI’s investigation of his campaign; the mysterious Trump Tower meeting; the firing of FBI Director James Comey; the appointment of Mueller and the investigation that has followed; the internal battles within Trump’s legal camp; and Trump’s jaw-dropping behavior in Helsinki.

Amerika unter Trump - die Weltmacht scheint plötzlich anders, fremd zu werden. Der Amerika-Experte Ronald D. Gerste beschreibt die vielfältigen Facetten eines mächtigen - und manchmal beängstigenden - Landes. Eine kompakte Reise durch Kultur und Geschichte einer Nation,die niemanden gleichgültig lässt. Nach fast 70 Jahren transatlantischer Partnerschaft wirkt die Schutzmacht USA für viele Europäer plötzlich fremd. In der Tat stellt die Wahl des 45. amerikanischen Präsidenten, der so denkbar wenig Ähnlichkeit mit einem George Washington, einem Abraham Lincoln oder einem Barack Obama hat, eine Zeitenwende dar. Deutsche und Europäer teilen mit den Amerikanern wesentliche Werte und unsere Kultur wird in ganz beträchtlichem Maße von amerikanischen Institutionen, von Hollywood bis Facebook, mitgeprägt. Doch Vieles an Amerika und den Amerikanern erscheint uns merkwürdig oder gar erschreckend: die Allgegenwart von Schusswaffen, die tiefe Religiosität, der manchmal exzessive Patriotismus (´´America can´t do wrong!´´), die Kluft zwischen den Rassen, zwischen Metropolen und einer pittoresken, oft aber auch öden Provinz, zwischen intellektuellen Eliten und Redneck-Proleten im Pickup-Truck. Der Amerika-Experte Ronald D. Gerste führt den Leser durch Geschichte und Gegenwart, durch Kultur und Politik, durch Glanz und Schatten eines fernen Freundes. Diese ungekürzte Hörbuch-Fassung wird Ihnen exklusiv von Audible präsentiert und ist ausschließlich im Download erhältlich. 1. Sprache: Deutsch. Erzähler: Olaf Pessler. Hörprobe: http://samples.audible.de/bk/adko/003628/bk_adko_003628_sample.mp3. Digitales Hörbuch im AAX Format.
