Censorship Now!! by Ian F. Svenonius
Censorship Now!! is a sharp and clever book of 16 essays by musician and author Ian F. Svenonius, "compiled with the assistance of the Committee for Ending Freedom."
The common theme overall is in challenging the very basic notions that we are daily living with in essays about sugar, college rock, Ikea, Apple, shaving, documentaries, the twist, Nordic design, the service industry, the internet, art & more. The author wants us to re-examine what we should really be censoring in this world, and that is- all the boring stuff that is turning the world into one without character left anymore. No one else is really taking a look at this aspect of contemporary society like this book is. "For many poor souls, there is no alternative to the alternative."
