(en) France, Union Communiste Libertaire UCL AL #304 - Read: 300, 000 years to get there (fr, it, pt)[machine translation]

Finally a book (a beautiful graphic novel) which popularizes well on the subject of " collapse ". The authors Grégory Jarry and Otto T. are no strangers to the popularization genre, they notably published the fairly well-known series Petite Histoire des colonies française . ---- In a writing on several levels, we see different situations being answered, from a rite of passage to adulthood 10,000 years ago to ecologists who besiege the last bastion of the capitalists who destroyed all ecosystems. Different COPs with capitalists who laugh at the good functioning of their strategy where the stranglehold of an economic vision as religion, really a lot of themes are addressed. ---- The narrative style which made the success of the two authors is again used in this volume with an effective narration accompanied by small funny and relevant strips to complete the subject. This graphic creation is therefore available here in several forms depending on the protagonists without losing the reader.

If only there were the causes of the collapse, this book would not be so original after all. But the authors also put forward a criticism of pacifism and the reasons for revolting. A few short sentences to " we love each other " are extensively criticized, the control of the elites over power, or the subjugation of the masses, repression against any deviant idea such as anarchism ...

We can always say that this novel goes a bit fast and is reductive on a subject that deals with 10,000 years of domination and the origins of destruction, but its role is not to explain everything. On the contrary, this writing, always refreshing, aims rather to lead to action, and in the current context where the ecologists wonder what means to use to make things change, the book gives a clear answer (p. 88): the pacifist message has been so integrated[...]that it protects the system instead of smashing it "then" we beat them? I feel hot there . "
