Today’s world continues whirling amidst the storm of political polarization. But for arts entrepreneur J. Marcelo Baqueroalvarez, critical thinking paired with intellectual honesty are still the key to staying level-headed in this global crisis. It’s why he wrote the book “Authoritarianism & Propaganda,” where he confronts the reality of today’s media landscape as the perfect breeding ground for authoritarian regimes from both left and right.

QUOTE “True critical thinking is the archnemesis of the authoritarian.”

Every year, the Los Angeles Times Festival of Books assembles hundreds of authors for a series of talks on pop culture, America’s marketplace of new ideas and trends shaping up the publishing industry. It’s also the site of numerous book exhibits featuring the work of many authors who want to expand their reading audiences.

Dozens of newly published authors are already getting their spots in these exhibits for next year’s festival. One of these is J. Marcelo Baqueroalvarez, a passionate arts entrepreneur who nonetheless has very serious lessons to share in his new book “Authoritarianism & Propaganda: The Puppet Master Tools.”

Baqueroalvarez is the founder of the website Half Life Crisis where he and his daughter share a variety of artistic and literary pieces, all often inspired by their nuanced observations on America’s present cultural climate.

He takes the very same approach in “Authoritarianism & Propaganda,” which he hopes will serve as a crash course to critical thinking and recognizing the very dangerous realities that are steering many societies around the world towards embracing authoritarianism. Baqueroalvarez also draws upon insights from his previous experience in the U.S. Navy, where he rose to the rank of Senior Chief Petty Officer. Using carefully crafted messaging, he hopes his book will challenge anybody to start re-assessing their approach to hot-button issues regardless of their political leanings. His historical analysis demonstrates how authoritarianism can come from anywhere and from any mix of best intentions if a society allows it.

Visitors to next year’s L.A. Times Festival of Books will have a chance to check out “Authoritarianism & Propaganda: The Puppet Master Tools” when it goes on display at the self-publishing and book marketing company ReaderMagnet’s exhibit. The outdoor literary festival is slated for April 20-21, 2024, at the University of Southern California campus in Los Angeles, CA. Get a copy on Amazon, Barnes & Noble, and most everywhere where books are sold around the world. For updates about the author’s works, visit
