Writing Worth Reading

Diary: Inside Golden Dawn

The culture and methods of Golden Dawn, the Greek neo-Nazi party, described by a journalist who won the group’s confidence by posing as an American fascist. “Dawners ambush immigrants about once a week. They call these raids krypteia, ‘secret things’. The party doesn’t go after the illegals in immigrant neighbourhoods; it targets those who have strayed into middle-class areas where residents are less welcoming” (3,600 words)

Crazymeds

The “best psychiatric resource on the entire internet” may well be a site called Crazymeds.us, which provides “accurate and readable descriptions of the costs and benefits of every psychiatric medication, clearly written by someone with an encyclopaedic knowledge of every treatment’s strengths and potential pitfalls”. So why isn’t Crazymeds better known? Because “the entire ethos of the site” is as cheesy as the name (1,900 words)

A Eulogy For RadioShack

“RadioShack is a rotten place to work, generally not a very good place to shop, and an untenable business to run. Everyone involved loses. These are stories from my three and a half years as a RadioShack employee … The majority of my RadioShack experience felt like guard duty. Depending on the store and the time of year, I could go four or five hours without seeing a single person walk in the door” (4,450 words)

Death Of A Cricketer

Australian cricketer Phillip Hughes was felled by a fast ball to the neck. “There is a vast, unspoken violence to the game of cricket. It is not immediately obvious, but is recognised and felt by anyone who has ever played it. A new cricket ball is about the size of an adult fist, as hard as a rock and is bowled by one person at another from a distance of 22 yards. The ball that hit Hughes was travelling at around 90 mph” (920 words)

Firestone And The General Pick of the day

Magnificent piece of extended reporting. Charles Taylor maimed and massacred his way to power in Liberia with help from the Firestone rubber company. Firestone gave Taylor money and a safe haven for his militia on its Liberian plantation. Taylor allowed the plantation to continue working. Taylor is now serving 50 years in gaol for crimes against humanity. Firestone is unrepentant. “Does Firestone believe it did the right thing? Yes” (20,000 words)
