What's a piece of literature (including books, articles, movies, plays, YouTube videos, etc.) that you think everyone should see? I'm planning to start going to the library regularly.

I would suggest two books. The first one is "Famine, Affluence, and Morality" by Peter Singer. It's a fairly short read, and doesn't try to be technical. It's a good introductory read to understand utilitarianism and what they stand for, or ought to stand for.

The second one is the Selfish Gene by Richard Dawkins. This one is a bit longer, but still fairly easy to understand for non-biologists. It illustrates how altruistic behaviors could survive natural selection, and also presents a new perspective on what how to define what is "alive."

I suppose there's also an article, To Build a Better Ballot. It explains how different methods of voting can better represent the interests of the voters. Honestly I recommend pretty much everything on ncase.me
