The latest addition to Clint Willis' hugely successful I Hate series, The I Hate the 21st Century takes on Internet pornography, reality television, school shootings, SPAM and SUVs to super-bugs, corrupt politicians (of all stripes), bigoted generals, religious fundamentalists, right-wing judges, celebrity sex offenders, and the state of Florida. That's not to mention doe-eyed ex-librarian Laura Bush and her boyfriend (you didn't know?) Ralph Nader. And let's not forget job exporting, fast food, ethnic cleansing, 2-a-gallon gas, factory farms, McJobs, global warming, and other people's fricking cell phones. It takes good writers to really understand what's worst about the world today. The I Hate the 21st Century features the likes of David Sedaris on the corporate workplace, Bill Hicks on late-night television, Barbara Ehrenreich on Wal-Mart, Eric Altman on the Fox Network, Greil Marcus on pop music, Richard Preston on Ebola, Eric Schlosser on McDonald's, Calvin Trillin on parking, Greg Palast on corporate skullduggery and JM Berger on over-excitable weathermen. Reading The I Hate the 21st Century won't improve the world—but it will help you to understand (and explain) why you sometimes hate living here so much.
