An entirely hand done account from a primitivist point of view about utilizing technology while realizing the contradiction, society imposing work and school upon us, and the way Romans at the end wrote history as if their empire wasn't about to crumble. Maybe they didn't realize it or maybe they were trying to prevent the public from realizing it. The good seems new, the bad seems old and accepted, and questionable changes are portrayed as good. The US writes the history books nowadays; are we about to be overtaken by metaphorical Visigoths? It's all hand written in a format that aesthetically reads very nicely. Ran doesn't talk about these things like he's the expert; he explores it like it's a conversation with a friend. Come check out the computer geek who thinks that computers are the downfall of society. - From publisher Personal reflections on the origins of civilization, how civilization has been a negative force, and what it might look like to reject it.
