Available for the first time in a single volume, the two influential and well-circulated pamphlets that comprise Abolish Work offer cutting-edge class analysis and critiques of daily life from the frontlines of the class war accompanied by uncensored, innovative illustrations. “Abolish Restaurants” is an illustrated guide to the daily miseries, stress, boredom, and alienation that restaurant work can entail, as well as the ways in which restaurant workers fight against these. It draws on a range of anticapitalist ideas as well as considerable personal experience. “Work, Community, Politics, War” is a comic book introduction to modern society, identifying both the oppressive and subversive tendencies that exist today with the aim of remaking society. Together, the pieces read alternately like a worker’s diary, a short story, a psychology of everyday life, and a historical account.

I wasn't expecting to be so mindblowned by it. I've learnt many things and understood better many others. This is a short and necessary reading for everyone. And for you in particular. Yes, you.
