Review: Crimethinc’s Days of War, Nights of Love

Days of War, Nights of Love: Crimethink For Beginners
Crimethinc.

Crimethinc. All the rage in 2000, largely forgotten now. Of all the things they did (newspapers, magazines, other books) this was the best. A pretty clear indictment of late capitalism in America and a call to live life fully. Of course, eating out of dumpsters and hopping trains does not a revolution make. It may be fun for a while, for a select few, in a country of riches, but its no way to change the world (or grow old). Interesting as a artifact of a specific time in the history of radical politics in America, but otherwise not worth your time.

Not recommended.
