Based on rich personal experience and participation in constructive subversion, along with wide reading from classics to the latest dreams of artificial intelligence, Horvat leads us on a whirlwind tour of the maladies and discontents of modern civilization and the many ways to right what is wrong and achieve a better future. --Noam Chomsky, MIT
History has only produced decency when good people infiltrated despotic institutions and succeeded in subverting them, often at a terrible cost to themselves. Horvat explains brilliantly subversion's creative potential, in juxtaposition to isolationism and escapism which are the establishment's best friends. --Yanis Varoufakis, Economist, former Finance Minister of Greece
