We’re teaching ourselves how to use Scribus so that we can create our own range of pamphlets. One of our members had previously been involved with turning Larry Law’s classic Spectacular Times text, Revolutionary Self Theory, into a blog and we thought this situationist masterpiece would make a good practice project.
Revolutionary Self Theory is worth reading just for this quote alone…
The absolutist wanders along the shelves of the ideological supermarket looking for the ideal commodity, and then buys it — lock, stock and barrel. but the ideological supermarket — like any supermarket — is fit only for looting. It is more productive for us if we can move along the shelves, rip open the packets, take out what looks authentic and useful, and dump the rest.
And remember you can get the original (highly recommended) Spectacular Times version from AK Press.
