Publisher's Summary

The creators of the cult-hit podcast Chapo Trap House deliver a manifesto for everyone who feels orphaned and alienated - politically, culturally, and economically - by the bloodless Wall Street centrism of the Democrats and the lizard-brained atavism of the right: there is a better way, the Chapo Way.

In a manifesto that renders all previous attempts at political satire obsolete, The Chapo Guide to Revolution shows you that you don’t have to side with either the pear-shaped vampires of the right or the craven, lanyard-wearing wonks of contemporary liberalism. These self-described “assholes from the Internet” offer a fully ironic ideology for all who feel politically hopeless and prefer broadsides and tirades to reasoned debate.

Learn the “secret” history of the world, politics, media, and everything in-between that they don’t want you to know and chart a course from our wretched present to a utopian future where one can post in the morning, game in the afternoon, and podcast after dinner without ever becoming a poster, gamer, or podcaster.

The Chapo Guide to Revolution features biographies of important thought leaders and the 10 new laws that govern Chapo Year Zero (everyone gets a dog, billionaires are turned into Soylent, and logic is outlawed). If you’re a fan of sacred cows, prisoners being taken, and holds being barred, then this book is not for you. However, if you feel disenfranchised from the political and cultural nightmare we’re in, then Chapo, let’s go....

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

Irreverent, hilarious and insightful

The Chapos have written a manifesto with the potential to flush out the toxic impurities absorbed by our current political and cultural moment.

Seriously, though, armed with irony, irreverence and a combative posture, a firm grasp of our cultural landscape and its relation to politics, this Guide is simply the strongest accessible case out there for a broadly socialist politics - especially to those who might otherwise be amenable to popular reactionary ideas that they casually or unthinkingly consume on YouTube through the likes of Jordan Peterson (e.g. alienated young men).

This book, in other words, captures the pulse of American politics and culture, and by revealing its underlying absurdity, levels a comedic, Leftist critique of political discourse dominated either by 1) champions of the "free" market or 2) those who denounce "cultural marxism" and the "globalists" in favour of no fap and modelling one's behaviour after lobsters.

Oh also, despite its US-focus, many of the book's arguments, particularly the insufficiency of liberalism, are equally applicable to a Canadian context under the spell of woke BAE Justin - so Canucks or Québecois, consider giving this a listen.
