Zushura Feb 13, Nick rated it it was amazing. Lies, exaggerations and blatant plagiarisms mix freely with passionate arguments. It thought it was cute. Friday, September 28, at crimeethinc PM: I gave this five stars even though I think it could only get three in reality. A manifesto for building a new world that should be on the bookshelf of every idealist, student, punk rocker, worker and ex-worker, poet, and lover.

It passed me in the library and I was curious to see how I might think of it now. Far less now than before. The authors, by all means, seem very serious about practical well, so to speak changes both personal and beyond. However, this is truly a very hypocritical book.
The anti-Christian rhetoric is piled on thick and narrow-sighted one of the authors suspiciously claims to be Sufi too? The call for co-operative, mutual economy is likewise tarnished by boast after boast of how they or others "cheated the system.
In short, a book that asks a lot of good questions, and offers a lot of dumb answers. It thought it was cute. I mean, I thought it was juvenile in that it was written as though it was intended to show high school kids that there were better ways to rebel against society than to emulate Marilyn Manson.
It is ironic that many of the people In the Spring of , all the college age anarchists acted like this was THE book that was going to herald anarchism into the 21st Century. It is ironic that many of the people that hate this book, and CrimethInc in general, are those who were trying to live the very lifestyle it promoted.
Most critics seemed to ignore the fact that the book is CrimethInc for beginners. And not even Anarchism for Beginners. Another interesting thing about the critics of this book is that I watched these same people over the years and most of them have given up and given into the society they once protested. Classic Anarchism is fine for some one who is fortunate enough to get a college education, and has the time to debate the revolution over beer.
I mean, really, what young Americans raised by working class families, the poor, and minorities care about what it was like in 19th Century Russia? For beginners in any kind of subversive counterculture, you got to start with something. It would be great if there were other books with the seal of approval from the cliques of the anarchist elite that are available for people other than the followers of the cliques of the anarchist elite.
So, the book is not that great and I am often annoyed by self-described CrimethInc kids, but very few of those college students have any thing better to offer people like me, who was raised by a poor single parent of color.
Dias de Guerra Noites de Amor
Crimethink for Beginners At heavily illustrated pages, our flagship book is the perfect size for any knapsack and the perfect reference manual for anyone seeking a life of passion and revolt. Rather than reading it from one cover to the other, casting perfunctory votes of disapproval or agreement along the way, and then putting it on the shelf as another inert possession, we hope you will use this as a tool in your own efforts—not just to think about the world, but also to change it. Heaven is a different place for everyone; hell, at least this particular one, we inhabit in common. Remember: the destructive impulse is also a creative one. Glorious, even for the most cynical reader. What more can we ask from a book?
