These books will change your life. Read them.
<1. Capital, Vol. I | Karl Marx
The classpill. Discover the extent to how the bourgeosie exploit you. NOTE: I wouldn't recommend reading it in its entirety as Marx was a shit writer and Capital is completely disorganized. Perhaps pick up the David Harvey companion book and jump around with Capital as if it was a textbook. Also, don't bother with Vols. II and III, those are just for the autists.
<2. The Unique and Its Property | Marx Stirner
The egopill. Eliminate your spooks, be your Unique. Or, in layman's terms, be gay and do crime.
<3. The Society of the Spectacle | Guy Debord
The situationistpill. The book examines the “Spectacle,” Debord’s term for the everyday manifestation of capitalist-driven phenomena; advertising, television, film, and celebrity. Everything about capitalist society starts to make much more sense after reading this.
<4. Capitalist Realism | Mark Fischer
The doomerpill. Or, as I like to call it, the realistpill. From wikipedia because I got lazy:
"According to Fisher, capitalist realism has so captured public thought that the idea of anti-capitalism no longer acts as the antithesis to capitalism. Instead, it is deployed as a means for reinforcing capitalism. This is done through media which aims to provide a safe means of consuming anti-capitalist ideas without actually challenging the system. The lack of coherent alternatives, as presented through the lens of capitalist realism, leads many anti-capitalist movements to cease targeting the end of capitalism, but instead to mitigate its worst effects, often through individual consumption-based activities such as Product Red."Post too long.
