520    "A clear-eyed warning about the increasingly destructive 
       influence of America's "shame industrial complex" in the 
       age of social media and hyperpartisan politics-from the 
       New York Times bestselling author of Weapons of Math 
       Destruction. Shame is a powerful and sometimes useful tool
       : When we publicly shame corrupt politicians, abusive 
       celebrities, or predatory corporations, we reinforce 
       values of fairness and justice. But as Cathy O'Neil argues
       in this revelatory book, shaming has taken a new and 
       dangerous turn. It is increasingly being weaponized-used 
       as a way to shift responsibility for social problems from 
       institutions to individuals. Shaming children for not 
       being able to afford school lunches or adults for not 
       being able to find work lets us off the hook as a society.
       After all, why pay higher taxes to fund programs for 
       people who are fundamentally unworthy? O'Neil explores the
       machinery behind all this shame, showing how governments, 
       corporations, and the healthcare system capitalize on it. 
       There are damning stories of rehab clinics, reentry 
       programs, drug and diet companies, and social media 
       platforms-all of which profit from "punching down" on the 
       vulnerable. Woven throughout The Shame Machine is the 
       story of O'Neil's own struggle with body image and her 
       recent decision to undergo weight-loss surgery, shaking 
       off decades of shame. With clarity and nuance, O'Neil 
       dissects the relationship between shame and power. Whom 
       does the system serve? Is it counter-productive to call 
       out racists, misogynists, and vaccine skeptics? If so, 
       when should someone be "canceled"? How do current 
       incentive structures perpetuate the shaming cycle? And, 
       most important, how can we all fight back?"--|cProvided by
