Buy Nothing Day

From Internationalist Books & Community Center:

The yearly protest of consumerism, inspired by Adbusters magazine, will feature a day of sharing skills and resources.  We'll be open for our regular hours, but no money will be exchanged.  Help oppose the 
brutally exploitative and wasteful consumer economy by boycotting the biggest shopping day of the year and forging connections with other like-minded people!  More details to come soon.

"The Psychology of Fascism" - talk at Internationalist Books


"The Psychology of Fascism" - talk with William Manson

Join us at Internationalist Books for a thought-provoking talk with William Manson about "The Psychology of Fascism."

What drives leaders such as George Bush and John McCain towards their destructive militarism and repressive global and domestic policies? In this provocative talk and discussion, Manson will analyze the authoritarian narcissism underlying US corporate and political power through the lens of psychology. Deriving insight from diverse thinkers including Sigmund Freud, Wilhelm Reich, Erich Fromm, and others, participants will examine the role of sexual repression, authoritarian conditioning, and pathological narcissism in shaping the psychology of America's leaders as the country edges towards fascism. Come prepared to learn, debate, and explore humanistic alternatives to the "wargasmic" policies of Republican (and Democratic) narcissists!

William Manson is a Chapel Hill-based radical intellectual historian and author who has published essays examining fascist psychology, authoritarian narcissism, and radical humanism in Fifth Estate magazine, Anarchy! A Journal of Desire Armed, and more.

 Find out how at Internationalist Books and Community Center on Thursday, July 31st at 7 PM, as we welcome author and activist Lyle Estill for a reading from his new book, Small Is Possible. This passionate, insightful book introduces us to "hometown security," with this chronicle of a community-powered response to resource depletion in a fickle global economy. True stories, springing from the soils of Chatham County, North Carolina, offer a positive counter balance to the bleakness of our age. This is the story of how one small southern US town found actual solutions to actual problems. Unwilling to rely on government and wary of large corporations, these residents discovered it is possible for a community to feed itself, fuel itself, heal itself and govern itself.

"Think self-reliance is far-fetched in a flat world? Lyle Estill's Small is Possible shows how it is being done for food, housing, energy, finance, health care, and just about everything else communities care about. A seasoned entrepreneur and social innovator, Estill tells fun-to-read stories that are engaging, insightful, and practical. His book is an indispensable resource for community organizers and economic developers alike."
-Michael Shuman, author of "The Small Mart Revolution: How Local Businesses are Beating the Global Competition"

Local resident Lyle Estill is the author of numerous articles, essays, and blog entries, including the book, Biodiesel Power; the Passion, People and Politics of the Next Renewable Fuel. He serves as vice-president of Piedmont Biofuels in Pittsboro, NC.
