My brother is becoming radicalized; how do I bring him back?

So, following this election and its disastrous results, I've decided to heed the calls of liberal commentators and take some responsibility for talking to my family who contributed to it. Specifically, I want to connect with my younger brother and bring him back from the brink of anti-government militia-like conspiracy thought. [more inside]

Is it worth getting into political arguments on Facebook?

I have this friend, we've known each other since we were five and I see her every time I go home. She helped me deal with my abusive ex and recently attended my grandad's funeral which was a difficult time. It's all good until she writes offensive, provocative stuff on FB and I feel like I don't know this person. Do I brush it to one side or engage with it? How would you deal with this? [more inside]

Sources on Sweden's far right/neo-nazi movement?

Asking for a friend: what books/articles are available in English on the far right/neo-nazi movement in Sweden? (Needed for a review of Stieg Larsson's trilogy.) There's some info online at Searchlight Magazine (for which Larsson was a contributor), but wondering if there's a general history/overview available. Thanks!

I need a "politics for dummies" book.

I'd like to be knowledgeable about politics enough to be able to state my opinion, engage in debates, and the like. I'm a one-issue person (gay marriage) and I'd like to discover my own beliefs about politics so that I no longer have to sit quietly when my friends get into it.

Watching the evangelicals

I'm worried about the aggressive attempt at cultural and political dominance being perpetrated by evangelical groups like this. Can anyone point me to grassroots watchdog groups / info clearninghouses / think tanks? Basically, I'm looking for any organization that is tracking and analyzing the strategies and propoganda of evangelical christian groups. I want to start paying some serious attention.

(No matter how I construct my terms, My Google searches are only returning grassroots watchdog groups made up of evangelical christians who are keeping an eye on the rest of us). [more inside]
