LIB-FESTO

Considering that U.S. society, and likely all of human civilization is collapsing into capitalist-imperialist-climate-change-induced anarchy/ chaos/ hardscrabble-refugee-serfdom (*let alone, um, what we're doing to all non-human life + the land, air and water bases!) it seemed like a good idea to at least try to provide (for free) some of our favorite scholarship/ philosophy/ theory/ criticism/ humor, covering a large range of interests/ study, to any of our possibly like-minded compadres...in the hope that it’s still possible to stall/ slow down/ transform any of the (many!) catastrophic/ terrifying social, political, environmental and spiritual directions that we are so blazingly, clumsily heading in (and also just for fun!) 

EDITOR’S NOTE: As it would take way, way too long to copy the entire original/ full texts here, these are necessarily shorter excerpts (*mostly between 20 and 50 pages) from all of these works; IE by definition all of these have been taken out of the original longer-form contexts/ sequences they were meant to be read in (often significantly, as well as in a few instances omitting the accompanying artwork.)…we just figured it would still be worthwhile to get all this stuff out there as a kind of primer (+ um, tease?)…making it incumbent upon y’all to seek out the work of these brilliant thinkers yourselves (+ links to purchase the full works are also included here.)  

 

Also worth noting; in a few instances some of the authors featured here have certain controversial/ problematic (for us, and others) views; however, crucially; we nonetheless feel that there's nothing espoused by any of the thinkers here that (yet) warrants the disavowal their entire body of work. However this is, of course, debatable! So please do let us know if you disagree and we can discuss it. We’ve tried to include a reasonably diverse range of perspectives and we will humbly expand it gradually/ accordingly, etc. Our intent here is to present some (hopefully) new ideas/ perspectives in order to get people thinking, talking, and acting/ MOVING! So: dig in and enjoy, fight the power, and let’s stick it to the fucking man!! PEACE! NETHERLANDS
