Zombies, Egypt, Neocons, and More (Video)

Let our journalists help you make sense of the noise: Subscribe to the Mother Jones Daily newsletter and get a recap of news that matters.


For your viewing pleasure, here’s a Bloggingheads diavlog between Daniel Drezner, professor of international relations at Tufts’ Fletcher School of Law and Diplomacy and author of Theories of International Politics and Zombies, and an effete pasty round-faced dude who sounds like me. BHTV went whole-hog on Thriller music, after-effects, and hidden zombies. They’re also offering a chance to win a copy of Drezner’s book; check out the brain-sucking details below. Otherwise, enjoy the back-and-forth on who’s the real walking undead: neocons, supply-siders, or Egypt protesters. Bonus: One (1) John Bolton mustache joke is hidden within!

ZOMBIE HUNT!

Win a copy of Theories of International Politics and Zombies! Hidden in this diavlog are five different images from well-known zombie features (four movies, one TV show). The first reader of this blog to correctly identify when those zombie scenes appear in the diavlog and from what movie or TV show they were taken, gets a copy of Dan Drezner’s new book. For a chance to win: Send an email to bloggingheadszombiehunt@gmail.com. In the body of your email, include a link to this blog post, the five different times (minute and second) in the diavlog when the zombie images appear, and the movie/show from where the images were taken. Contest ends at midnight on March 1. Happy hunting!

SIX TRUTHS

Reclaiming power from those who abuse it often starts with telling the truth. And in "This Is How Authoritarians Get Defeated," MoJo's Monika Bauerlein unpacks six truths to remember during the homestretch of an election where democracy, truth, and decency are on the line.

Truth #1: The chaos is the point.

Truth #2: Team Reality is bigger than it seems.

Truth #3: Facebook owns this.

Truth #4: When we go to work, we're in the fight.

Truth #5: It's about minority rule.

Truth #6: The only thing that can save us is…us.

Please take a moment to see how all these truths add up, because what happens in the weeks and months ahead will reverberate for at least a generation and we better be prepared.

And if you think journalism like Mother Jones'—that calls it like it is, that will never acquiesce to power, that looks where others don't—can help guide us through this historic, high-stakes moment, and you're able to right now, please help us reach our $350,000 goal by October 31 with a donation today. It's all hands on deck for democracy.
