The Power of Negative Thinking or Robin Hood Rides Again.

NY: The Council for the Liberation of Daily Life, April 1968. First edition. Stapled wrps., 42pp. Chasse's examination paper for his entry into the Situationist International. Ken Knabb has described this as "The American section's main publication...a critique of the New Left, actually published shortly before Chasse joined the SI" (he was excluded in January 1970). It also critiques hippies and the sexual revolution: "The whole hippie experience reveals and creates various illusions: the awareness of the dissolution of society is the reconstruction of another society; the disintegration of bourgeois 'moralty' is experienced as sexual liberation; the search through drugs for the euphoria of bored minds is invested with liberatory potential." Faint central vertical crease, o/w Very Good plus.
