Not since I came across Robert Anton Wilson - and subsequently Tim Leary, Terrence McKenna, Aleister Crowley, Idries Shah, Sufism, Gurdjieff, Beelzebub's Tales to His Grandson, Psychedelics, Magick, and all the other sinful, 'wickedest men in the world', and the typical vagabond-gang of heretics RAW tends to lead to for mushroom-proselytizing and subsequently ayahuasca-initiating adolescent unrepentant anarchists - has a book more authentically, more book-ily, more zinging and pinging with belly ...more

One of the most important, striking and frightening books I have read in some time.

The rest of this review will be an attempt to fit this book neatly into preconceived and boxed up categories, because that is the only way I - that is, the Self - can deal with it without tearing my clothes off and running into the golden sunlight currently dripping out of the blue winter sky.

I have been telling pretty much anyone that would listen to me for the past couple of years that Mark Fisher's Capitalist

Along side Darren Allen's The Apocalypedia, 33 Myths of the System has been one of the most impactful books of my life. Not only a radical critique of the system but a new way to see your self. A funny, frank and fresh examination of reality. ...more

To reciprocate the author's generosity of providing the book for free , I will go with four stars.
I do have some important quibbles with the author about his sometimes false equivocation of extreme left & extreme right politics. I understand that to contrast one's own politics or just to make a point, one might sometimes feel compelled to sparingly use broad totalizing generalisations/critiques, yet the both sides argument is off-putting when I know from reading the author himself that he defini

In the words of Wittgenstein "This book will perhaps only be understood(read appreciated) by those who have themselves already thought the thoughts which are expressed in it—or similar thoughts."

The views of the book are certainly a bit "out there". The only other book I have read that sits in the same genre as this one is the infamous "Unabomber manifesto". At times, it is extremely coherent and witty. At other times, it is tedious and repetitive. Certainly not the kind of text that can be take

I really enjoyed this book. Some of the material was challenging and I didn't exactly agree with everything, but it did make me re-consider a lot of my own ideas and actions. Also, the footnotes are a great jumping-off point to explore many of the ideas further. I can't wait for the next book (33 myths of the Ego). Darren Allen is a great writer and has a knack for breaking down complex and ephemeral topics into digestible chunks without watering down the message. Highly recommended! ...more
