Creation is deception when it serves the channels which it aims to oppose. Radical literature remains in the realm of commodity, as a collector’s item, as part of a buy-in culture. It has never been more profitable for academies and publishing institutions, including those who self-present as radical or anarchist presses, to publish incendiary literature, often replicating the exclusive cult of personality that draws sales. There are unprecedented profits for the publishing of guides, how-to’s, and manuals for convenient revolutions. Molotovs are fashion statements!
