Editorial Reviews

Review

"Any book indirectly responsible formassive raids involving helicoptersand anti-terrorist police, a spleneticFox News broadcast and an impromptubook-reading at a Barnes & Noble bookshopin New York (also attended by thepolice) must have something going for it.And so it is with The Coming Insurrection,the kind of political pamphlet last fashionablein the 17th century (and perhapsfor a period in the 1960s and '70s)." Nina Power Frieze Magazine



"For culture jammers, anarchists and malcontents everywhere, The Coming Insurrection is a bracing tonic -- an elegant and inspiring call to arms." Kono Matsu Adbusters



"I am not calling for a ban on this book. It's important that you read this book. [...] And let me tell you something: Don't dismiss these people. Don't dismiss them." Glenn Beck Fox News, Glenn Beck Program



"This is quite possibly the most evil thing I've ever read." Glenn Beck Fox News, Glenn Beck Program



"...without a doubt the most thought-provoking radical text to be published in the past ten years. It deserves to be read and discussed." Daniel Miller New Statesman

About the Author

The Invisible Committee is a collective and anonymous pen name.

Customer Reviews

It certainly isn't engaging as a narrative.
Pen Name?
It's dull, it's rambling and it's unpleasant at times, but it's 3 hours (audio book time) that will enlighten you as to what's really going on in some people's minds.
P. Eisenman
Not a coherent idea anywhere and no indication what will replace the current society "after the insurrection."

This is not the type of book one looks at based on the usual "do I like it?" criteria. It's NOT that kind of book.

THE COMING INSURRECTION is, simply put, a manifesto. It is dull and wandering. As a "workable plan" for a society, it is the usual Marxist utopian vision of all men enjoying the benefits of nobody's exploited labor.

And as scary as the idea of anarchists and Marxists rioting in the streets is (Don't LOOK--they're doing it right now in France on 10/22/10), the really scary part of this book is the authors' analysis of the state of Western Civilization. This is not so much a condemnation of Capitalism by Marxists--we're all familiar with that--but, rather a clear outline of the hardcore Marxist view of Progressivism, community organizing, Environmentalism and Social Democratic ideas.

The contention the authors have that Western Civilization is IN collapse and not in "crisis" should cause you to consider whether or not government action is designed to prop up the free-market economy and society or whether they are merely trying to prop up the FACADE of the free-market economy and society. Ask yourself if the authors are right when they conclude that the negation of ideas has become the norm and whether or not current society exalts those who believe in nothing and demonizes those who hold to principles. Ask yourself what REALLY drives those in government and the environmental movement and compare it to what the authors think is the motivating force.

DRAW YOUR OWN CONCLUSIONS. If you want to stick your head in the sand or don't want to give up the comfortable idea that everything will be alright because it's always worked out OK before, that's your choice.

This somewhat bizarre, yet intriguing, commentary on contemporary society and the building revolt against the governmental and economic oppression being felt is set in France. This version is a translation from the original, which includes good endnotes that clarify some references to French agencies, governmental or commercial entities and revolutionary or terrorist groups.

But American readers (hearers) will instantly be able to envision the analysis in the American context. This is not a classic format nor is it classic content. The authors' introduction clarifies that this is not a composition based on their own viewpoint It does involve an analysis or reflection on what they have observed.

The oral presentation is well done and easy to listen to. They present this as a compilation of comments and viewpoints they have picked up and recorded in barroom discussions and backrooms, ion street corners and in various locales where the general populace discuss the problems of the day. They present a basic view that can be called Marxist in the formal sense, and they carefully define their viewpoint, indicating that their commentary on what they have compiled focuses on the perspective of group or society, that is, communal concepts.

They dissociate the term commnune-ism from the classic Leninist concept known politically as Communism. They describe what they understand as communal living in society. The perspectives here seem closer to Marx's original analysis of early capitalist industrial society in Europe. But you will see it is not exactly Marxism as we have known it, either.

The perspective is quite disdainful about the possibilities of the current society, but does not fit neatly into what we have known as "Communism" in the 20th century.

Sure, it's long-winded, theoretical in the manner of the French lit theorists, implacable, impractical, and bombastic, but doesn't it also ring true? A plaintive call against the out of control corporate-consumerist mindset. Screams of protest at the status quo. Worth seeing, and hearing, but do we really think there's a revolution coming? In fact, they chose the work insurrection to, I think, avoid the cliches about "the revolution" (first against the wall, not televised, and long predicted). Similar works inspired folks 40-45 years ago to no measurable revolution. Regardless of intents and smarts, that precedence is hard to ignore.

This should be required reading for all American citizens and certainly all High School and College students. We do not need to repeat the mistakes that the French have made in allowing people from outside their country to migrate to their nation and setup communities that do not recognize local laws. Many "unelected officials" in the Obama Administration in the U.S. have similiar goals.

The Coming Insurrection is one of those books that is worthy of consideration. The is worth of consideration not because its views are those that we necessarily agree with, but rather being informed and cognizant of what a particular group or faction is saying is something that unfortunately has been lost in today's self-involved, mostly self-indulgent soundbite-driven society. he Powers that Be do not want change because it's uncomfortable, it jars loose the facade of "civilized society". When that happens people can either embrace it, confront it or run from it, but you can never pretend that it isn't there.

This is perhaps a crucial point that the Invisible Committee is trying to put across to those who have the courage and the patience to listen. Listening doesn't mean you agree with it - and I don't agree with all of what "The Coming Insurrection" has to say. However, there is an incredible eloquence and sense of history, as well as an underlying impression that the Invisible Committee is quite aware of the gilded cages and the false sense of security that our governments and corporations have lulled the larger public at large into. We are dependent upon the systems that have been laid into place and we forget important realities. Some of those realities include the idea that so many people within our civilized society don't know how to take care of themeselves by way of growing their own food, self sufficiency, or barely know how to function without the devices of cellphones or computers. Nor how to be in the world without leaving a digital footprint with every moment that they make.
