Where are the seekers, the free thinkers, the advocates, the rebels? In this brutally honest love letter to the individual, to freedom, to life itself, longtime alternative journalist Sam Smith takes on our political alienation and makes it personal. How can the thoughtful and creative individual coexist with our mega-corporate culture?
Drawing from philosophy and anthropology to the internet and punk zines, from Kierkegaard to Humphrey Bogart and Rage Against the Machine, Smith speaks to despair, personal rebellion, suicide and false faith, the loss of democracy, and what to do when nobody cares whether you do it or not. Describing despair as 'the suicide of imagination,' Smith writes, 'the task is to bear knowledge without it destroying ourselves, to challenge the wrong without ending up on its casualty list.'
