Un libro que ofrece la esperanza de que, gracias a pensadores como Kropotkin, la utopía razonable y razonada no ha muerto todavía.
Jim Mac Laughlin es un prestigioso especialista en Geografía Política y Ciencias Sociales. Ha impartido clases en el University College de Cork.
Por este motivo el anarquismo puede aparecer en momentos de grandes alteraciones sociales o en periodos de calma, en zonas industriales o en el agro, en ciudades o en cuencas mineras. Y siempre con la misma divisa: «Contra toda autoridad». Esa es la fuerza del anarquismo, su poderosa base ideológica y vitalista.
Este libro anhela abrir caminos y dejar pistas para navegantes que quieran cartografiar la disidencia. Señales que indiquen por dónde seguir, para distinguir la desobediencia, la crítica constructiva, la sátira inteligente y la lucidez mental en tiempos de confusión y pensamiento único.
''It is the most detailed fictional treatment of the movement from a world recognizably like our own to an anarchist society that I have read. More importantly, it is imagined strongly enough to allow readers to believe that events could happen this way''. Dr Daniel P. Jaeckle, author of 'Embodied Anarchy in Ursula K. Le Guin's The Dispossessed'
Maxie rebels and runs away, with the anarcha-feminists, occupiers and gays.. Set during the collapse of capitalism, amid climate chaos, we live out the social and permaculture revolution, and the dawn of a money-free world
Accompany Linda through her hilarious, terrible day, as she:-escapes her useless school and abusive daddy,-changes her name to Maxie and falls in with the anarcha feminists, squatters and gays.
The State is going bottoms up, the Climate is going crazy, we're living the collapse of capitalism, blow by blow, with a rainbow.Maxie and her new friends get free of their traumas,and get into dealing subversive death blows, to a skinhead gang,a bankrupt school and the testerical special police.
Next thing they flee to Ragwort CoOp Pool,in a big safe occupied working class area. We play the adventure live through their eyes, laughing and lamenting… inventing social revolution.The PIF soldiers eventually arrive, to restore capitalist chaos, Macker and Maxie are missing, the hunt begins, while the spaced out invaders get subverted, corrupted, swallowed and (burp) digested.
Our odd family puzzles with the pieces.. finding a fun lifestyle,a coppice farm, and bright ideas for saving The Planet, but keep your hankies ready, folks.. click on your giant wings, for the fantastic FLYING finale!
