Description: Is protest worth the effort? This work looks at the history of Protest movements and activity and asks whether there is any point in taking to the streets, or whether a more effective form of revolt might be to lie in bed doing nothing. It argues that anti-war marches are futile and that much more can be achieved by staying in bed.
Synopsis: We are all agreed that there's a lot to complain about in contemporary society. Boredom, exploitation, an explosion of legislation and interference with our everyday freedoms: central government and big business seem to make life more difficult with each month that passes. But do we really need to take to the streets to protest? Or would a more effective form of resistance be to take to our beds and quietly recreate our own lives? In this issue of the Idler, we reflect and philosophise on the notion of protest. CORINNE MAIER interviews three French filmmakers making anti-work movies; we meet the brilliant history professor RONALD HUTTON. JAY GRIFFITHS writes on missionaries; JOHN NICHOLSON celebrates paradise; we ask whether there's any point in going to university and PENNY RIMBAUD reveals the meaning of life. Plus articles on the practical side of idling with advice on treehouse-building and beer-brewing.
