Fragments No. 2

FRAGMENTS #2

Published July 2001

Fragments #2 features 48 mind-expanding pages of essays, stories, quotes, photos and original graphics. The theme is "Power," which I explore from a number of different perspectives. The central thesis is that leaders and elite groups can never possess absolute power, because their authority depends on the support of ordinary people.

The writing reflects my opposition to political violence, militarism, corporate hegemony, hierarchy and sexism. I think you will find this issue of Fragments to be challenging and thought provoking.

Here are the titles of the text pieces:

Power-Over

Reclaiming the Power of Community by Priscilla Boucher

Fragments No. 1

FRAGMENTS #1

First published April 1996

Fragments #1 features 36 pages of essays, quotes, graphics and photos. The theme is "Disintegration"—social decay, the breakdown of authority, the breakup of mass culture, the decline of civilization, the end of the world. Ultimately, it expresses a tentatively optimistic view of humanity's future.

Fragments #1 takes the position that many of our most cherished social values and institutions have become obsolete: militarism, consumerism, nationalism, conservatism, hierarchy, patriarchy, political revolution. Our failure to adapt ourselves to new conditions results in alienation, social disruption and chaos.
