The New Americans takes us on a wild meme-driven ride to meet the founders of Reddit and WallStreetBets, crypto fanatics, bored housewives, and TikTok-ers turned millionaire traders, in order to investigate the never-before-made connection between the Gamestop squeeze and the Jan 6th Insurrection. Disruptive tropes can help a disenfranchised generation to rise up against corrupt power structures. But will algorithms amplify our worst impulses, threatening the very pillars of our democracy? “The New Americans” is a mem-ified punk rock manifesto that takes us inside the “revolution game” to look at where we came from and where we’re headed on the precipice of this new era.
