really fucking good articles

ya, so. i really like articles and i’ve basically used facebook to share articles for the past three years nearly non-stop (like really just that, what are friends and family?). anyway over time i’ve come to find a certain type of article i really liked, so i came back and trawled through everything to pick out some of these articles and compile them into a massive list.

most of these articles that i’ve selected are selected because i feel that they are pretty objective and give a very clear-eyed view of what’s happening in a particular situation. another thing i look out for is depth and content; some of these articles really go all the way to make you understand new/basic concepts in order for you to really understand the situation. (quite a few are based on individuals, and are in-depth about the lives of these individuals.)

all of them just in general have great writing and although there are many serious topics there are numerous articles with lighthearted content as well, and some articles which simply showcase good writing or are just plain funny.

disclaimer: i do not claim to have (or actively support) the views espoused in any of these articles. they are just good articles cuz i think they are objective or in depth. an article might be objective but might still be wrong for other reasons.

also i am quite sad that, probably due to the nature of my feed, many of these articles focus on the topics of academia or american politics. there is much more happening in the world and i acknowledge that. if you know any articles about different topics (such as politics of another country) which are written in a similar style as these articles (with focus on objectivity and in depth content) do comment! i’ll look to see if i can add it.
