Days of War, Nights of Love is an artistic manifesto from the folks at CrimethInc., the “Ex-Workers collective”
Anyone interested in Graphic Design, The philosophy of Self-over-Civilization, contemporary “me first” Anarchy (societal organizers need not apply: this book was more for living a worthwhile life, not fighting endlessly for some stone-carved cause) or just to see what the cool kids were up to around 2001 C.E. this book is for you. Don’t worry, its only 47 megs of your internet life through the tubes.
“Days” has been disappeared from the Crimethinc.com website and this is the reason they came online in people’s minds. Besides this book, I haven’t found much use for this crew. Crimethinc glorified shoplifting (wrote a whole book about it called evasion) and the notes on my parcels were always unintelligible. These days, Crimethinc is pretty bland. They are now ideologues who like to circle jerk about how great “Anarchy” would be. But this one document is lots of fun and very engaging. It will give you something to think about for a couple weeks or so.
Another article of note is: “Why We Don’t Make Demands.” This is about the widespread protests
that happened and why it is a bad idea for groups to make demands.
If you want to order a printed copy, this link will take you directly to CrimethINC’s order page. This is one of those books that I really enjoy owning, because it is so beautiful and well-made.
