Review quote

"An 'ecstatic sobriety' which combats the dreariness of one and the bleariness of the other--false pleasure and false discretion alike--is analogous to the anarchism that confronts both the false freedom offered by capitalism and the false community offered by communism." --CrimethInc. Ex-Workers' Collective
