A revised edition of the 1985 underground work by Gerald B. Lorentz (October 1915 - April 2007) featuring a new introduction and afterword. One of his last public announcements was about this reissue of his life's work. "History clearly proves that man is a plunderer, a killer, and a hypocrite.He cannot face the reality of his own despicable nature. Even when he kills he fancies that he performs a service to God or country. Capitalism satisfies all the predatory instincts natural to man in the economic purlieu; that is, satisfies his need to plunder, prey, defend; and to mask his predations with euphemisms and hypocorisms... Predation is normal and natural for the human species. Capitalists, actors, athletes, and rock musicians do not think of themselves as plunderers of the fruits of the labors of working people, nor do union workers think of themselves as plundering from nonunion workers. Plundering has always been perfectly natural and ethical for the human animal, only the rules governing predation change." This new edition is published jointly by APOP Records and Underworld Amusements.
