"Can you do it? When the time comes? When the time comes there will be no time. Now is the time. Curse god and die."

Possibly my favorite book I've ever read. A gripping tragedy of a father and son's journey through the destroyed, cannabalistic, violent, and bleak ruins of Earth. Written in a short stylistic way, this book will HOLD and KEEP you!

"We have nothing to lose but our boredom!"


This book changed my life before I even read it! The Situationist's ideas influenced those of my mentors and laid the groundwork for restructuring our lives to meet the immediate needs, desires, and dreams of our community rather than organizing our lives for the perpetuation of profit for capitalism's few benefactors. Arguing against reform and consumerism, and  instead for the use of militant activism, detournment, and complete realization of our everyday lives!
