The Front


GEORGE MONBIOT, author of the highly acclaimed Captive State: The Corporate Takeover of Britain and the recently published The Age of Consent: A Manifesto for a New World Order reveals the books and authors that have been most influential on his thinking.

1 Thomas Paine: The Rights of Man It's one of the most wonderful pieces of political writing I've ever come across.

2 John Clare I find his poetry incrediny inspiring and sad and brilliant.

3 Tolstoy: Resurrection It made me think very hard about identity politics.

4 Bernard Llotaor: The Future of Money A fascinating book about how we can change the money system to start helping employment and the environment rather than destroying them. Lietaer used to be the world’s biggest currency trader so he knows what he’s talking about.

5 Alastair McIntosh: Soil and Soul Just a brilliant book.

‘Just another big shitstarn on the internet' are the first words that greet you on mental Ernie's webSite. This is a portal to two separate areas. one ‘humorous' (safe for work). the other an array of fairly innocuous soft-COre porn (not safe for work). The humorous section segues a column by the profane iakey himself with images of smoking monkeys. There are picture links to random sentences pulled Out of the text which are quite hilarious - if you find delirious obscenity and unwarranted insults in the least bit amusing. that is.
