Then there will be those who would be completely lost in this type of environment but who are willing to take a virtual stroll among the squatters and "slum it". Finally we come to the majority of the population who either won't "get it" or who will look at these people as layabouts and bums while muttering "get a job". These are the people who have never had to go without and think everything comes as easily as it has in their pampered lives. I'd still recommend it to those people just to annoy them for my own amusement but would not expect them to take anything away from the experience.
Aaron Cometbus in Double Duce is a singular voice from a time and place long since gone and now open to a kinder look back. But his writing will remind you it wasn't a Hollywood portrayal of punks on parade all dressed in painted leather jackets and wearing enormous liberty spikes. These were real people fighting to stay alive in a determinedly alternative, but every bit valid lifestyle.
Anyway, I am on my third copy of this book; and while it might possibly not be for everyone, it's probably just the thing for you.
