With his trademark intelligence and humor, Curtis White argues that the American left needs a new and compelling spiritual basis for its politics, and that its seeds can be discovered in Thoreau's spiritual politics of refusal and a return to human "fundamentals" especially work, home, and food. Along the way, White offers a shrewd reading of the cult classic Office Space, a scathing critique of Bill Maher's political comedy, and other acerbic cultural commentary. The book includes provocative interviews with James Howard Kunstler, John de Graaf, and Michael Ableman.
