The Anarchist Cookbook by William PowellI love this book because of its commentary on America. By that I dont mean to say that the rambling bs of the author is valid or insightful. I dont think the nutmeg or banana trippin is real or warrants a read. I do not believe the bomb making tutorials are the best to be found.
No what I love about this book is how blatantly useless it is, while somehow managing to be so feared and despised. Ive heard a lot of people over the years say that ownership of this book is just cause for outrageous searches and punishments, that anybody with this book has a severe predilection to violence and that the book should be banned. Obviously those people havent actually looked at this book.
But, it seems to my eye that that is a succinct observation about modern America. We dont care about substance, we care about hype. We dont need to see proof, we just need to hear scary background music.
We dont need to read a book to see if it is really the devils best attempt to destroy humanity, we just need to believe as were told.
At least were the home of the brave in our songs.
