SHIT MAGNET is Goad's manifesto, written while he was incarcerated. The book's theme is guilt - how the act of blaming the enemy and slaying him is history's propulsive force. Preferring the role of 'shit magnet' to 'pity sponge,' he explores the disabling effects of guilt; uncovers sinister forces behind fashionable stances on race, gender, and criminal justice; and offers his own life as an example of how 'evil' can be imprinted on a person from an early age.
Goad is the former publisher of the legendary zine ANSWER ME! and the author of THE REDNECK MANIFESTO.
