Endorsement:  I am not convinced you even understand my concepts of moral relativity, so perhaps it would be best for you not to approach them.

Marx may have had a bit of a totalitarian current, but my main beef with I'm is more in his materialist view of history, and his smugly certain predictions of the future. He essentially views the universe in a way that is completely unappealing to me: as a predictable piece of machinery.

It needs more explanation of the actions you can take "starting now," though that might be what the Discordian quotes will be for.

Also, that seal is awesome. Where did you get it?

Thank you. I knew that Situationism was used with Anarchism at least sometimes, though it's Anarchism is such a broad movement that it's really difficult to take just that knowledge as evidence something would be useful: I've known (via the internet, of course) several Anarchists who agreed with many of the basics points of Marxism, and saw Lenin as the point where Communism went wrong. As for the knowledge of avant-garde artistic movements, I may not have enough, but I think I'll risk going on anyway. I probably won't start any time soon, as I've got a bunch of books that I should read lined up, but I guess I'll add The Revolution of Everyday Life to the queue.
I'm reading Homage to Catalonia by Orwell.

What I've read of the Situationist International has been interesting, but, for any of you who may have read any Situationist works, is it worth it? Are the ideas presented useful, or at least interesting? I know that Situationism was born out of Marxism, so would its ideas be sound if one does not believe Marx's historical theories are correct? If they are worth reading, what is a good book to start with? Include some of the more dense and in-depth stuff as well as lighter, introductory books.
