Weaponizing Literary Death Match: Our Pivot Towards Protest

Trump: a democracy-hating fascist who’s slogan should be: “One for me and none for all.”

The title essay of this collection is must-read.

Literary Death Match is a weapon against the threats posed by this upcoming administration

The way I see it, literature equals freedom. And with a President-Elect that boasts that he hasn’t read a book in 25 years, we’re all in for a serious fight. An existential battle for the freedoms of expression and a belief in civility. Don’t believe me? Look at his Cabinet: a who’s who of anti-decency (from a white supremacist chief-of-staff; a sexist Labor secretary; and a homophobic Vice President that daydreams The Handmaid’s Tale would come true). Nearly 11 years ago, when LDM started on a whim, I never thought it would have to stand for anything, or would ever need to. But now I see that it must. There’s no other choice. I hope you’ll support us and join us as we fight the power.
