After a rather trying summer, with all of the headlines reporting instance after instance of our continuing fall from grace as a country and supposed world leader. My Angry Hippie side was on overdrive as my eyes poured over pages upon pages of horribly aggravating stories that indicated one thing in my mind…the fall was coming. Not like Fall, you know follows summer, precedes Winter. But like the fall. This ‘empire’ with its arrogance and destructive ways has been digging its own grave for years. The question now becomes, is it too late to get ourselves out of the hole? Printaissance #4 may be able to answer that…
Cover of Printaissance #4 released August 2011
The fourth issue is a socio-political lit zine which uses historical accounts, modern day headlines, poetry, angry hippie insights and more to compile this ranty look at the parallels in the fall of Rome and the looming fall of the ‘American’ Empire. It is titled The Fall of the American Empire as a foreshadowing, and foreboding, hint at this possible future that it seems the United States is barreling towards. This issue is certainly an opinionated romp through the darker side of our country and is not for the faint of heart.
