A word from the editor of Evergreen

"Dear Aliens, May I call you that?" So begins Yasmin Nair's extraordinary manifesto, a bold, human, and surprisingly geeky attempt to formulate a new left ideology against the resurgent forces of fascism and white supremacy. A wide-ranging critique of the shortsightedness of neoliberal accommodation and a surprisingly tender-hearted rejection of love and shame as political strategies, Nair's polemic is motivated by one overarching idea: "Change or die."
