About the Book

Antidisestablishmentarianitially Speaking rises above the mess we’ve made of our world, a world at the end of our nose. Page after page, this glorious compendium of essays provides wholehearted laughter at our miserable condition and the uncanny ability for humanism to persevere. The plight of our ideals in this arrogant era may leave you in tears, but if that old ship is sinking, H. Alan Tansson has shown us a way to rebuild it, one plank at a time. This companion volume to We Think We Think takes four dreary subjects onto the playground. Education, religion, history, and political economics will never be the same.

Antidisestablishmentarianitially Speaking spins old Tom Paine’s arguments around to show the church and state united in the distant future. Open a greeting card for the “Bargain Basement Apocalypse,” discover the basis of boredom in practice, the underpinnings of prayer, and what’s missing in The Protocols of the Elders of Zion. There are thirty essays packed with scholarly syncretism, magic, and strange new harmonies rung from the irony of our times. Give yourself, your friends, and your family a gift, and begin to learn the new art of antidisestablishmentarianistically speaking!
