Like a Smart Bomb, But In Paper Form

It's funny that the '70s broadsheet Radical Software, which deserves an entry all its own, doesn't have one because it was so far ahead of its time as to be beyond it. It's crazy to think that they were publishing only around 10 years after Guy Debord and the Situationists published their own proposals for radical (and playful) social experiments.

It's funny because you mix these two together -- and throw in a Burning Man or two -- and you arrive at I don't know yet quite how to summarize what we got here, but I think it's kind of valuable. Start with these two strange and beautiful PDFs (1, 2) and head out and up from there. There may not ever be peace again, but it's nice to know that humans may benefit by getting to play with the same toys that our Tomahawk missiles do.

Page 3 of PDF 1 reads just like a Beckman poem. I think it's the part about the sandwiches.
