In this collection of essays, the first book published by Black Powder Press, Seaweed invites us to consider some of the possibilities for land-based struggles against capitalist civilization. Seaweed puts forth a vision of a de-industrialized world free from the fetters of authoritarian institutions in which humans choose to live in small-scale communities embedded in habitats. Loosely described as organically self-organized subsistence or insurrectionary subsistence movements, Seaweed urges a planetary revolt based around access to land so that we can ultimately renew our relationships to each other and to nature.

From the introduction:

"Complete transformation, of our relationships with each other and with our natural environments is both possible and urgent.The more widespread the participation the quicker and more likely it will happen. Ultimately it means overturning and dismantling the global grid of authoritarian and capitalist institutions that dominate our lives. If having a reciprocal relationship with the natural environment is inherently healthy because it creates habitats, which in turn sustain their living inhabitants, then a focus on acquiring a land base would seem always positive. Local or regional undertakings in acquiring these bases seem most sensible. Actions around re-appropriating land, because they undermine the state and the market's control over our shared environments, help destroy the global institutions which prevent us from having access to land in the first place."
