Slacker Hits

Slacker Hits:
In praise of Idleness by Bertrand Russell
The abolition of work by Bob Black

Published by Bastard Press

23 Pages – English

Original published in 1932 and 1996 respectively.

“These are not critiques of work efficiency, work safety or worker’s rights by workers, but a critique of work itself – by two men who spent their lives avoiding it ; an attack from the distant, observational deck of goofing off. Russell’s essay, from the heart of the Great Depression, is an appeal to reassess the idea of work, workers and the worker’s cause. Black’s essay, from the heart of greed-centred nineteen-eighties, appeals to the desire in us all to slack off and have more fun, sex and creative play.” – from the back cover.
