50 Simple Things You Can Do To Fight the Right

For indispensable reporting on the coronavirus crisis and more, subscribe to Mother Jones' newsletters.


Okay, it seems a shadowy group of progressive numerologists has decided that the number 50 is endowed with mystical properties that, harnessed effectively, will put the U.S. governance back on a rational footing and possibly levitate the Pentagon. First, we had “50 Ways to Save the Ocean,” now, from Earth Works Press (the folks who brought you “50 Simple Things You Can Do to Save the Earth,”)…”50 Simple Things You Can Do To Fight the Right,” a handbook crammed with useful information about what “YOU can do at home and in your community to defend America!”

What YOU can do is, among other things, “reclaim the Bible,” “take back the language,” “be a media watchdog,” and, yes, “give the Right a wedgie” (disappointingly, they mean “wedge issue”). The books tells you how. Click on the cover image to check it out.

Thank you!

We didn't know what to expect when we told you we needed to raise $400,000 before our fiscal year closed on June 30, and we're thrilled to report that our incredible community of readers contributed some $415,000 to help us keep charging as hard as we can during this crazy year.

You just sent an incredible message: that quality journalism doesn't have to answer to advertisers, billionaires, or hedge funds; that newsrooms can eke out an existence thanks primarily to the generosity of its readers. That's so powerful. Especially during what's been called a "media extinction event" when those looking to make a profit from the news pull back, the Mother Jones community steps in.

The months and years ahead won't be easy. Far from it. But there's no one we'd rather face the big challenges with than you, our committed and passionate readers, and our team of fearless reporters who show up every day.
