ANELECTA by Stewart Home, Sabotage Editions, London 1996
The best parts of this rare and out-of-print pamphlet were recycled in Confusion Incorporated. The introduction follows:
There is no average or real truth to be discerned among the different fronts of prejudice. Each is a truth in so far as it satisfies the writer. T. E. Hulme.
The human mind has its ages like the body. Herder.
Conservative minds are simultaneously surprised, impressed and horrified by the results of dialectical thinking. If it is a cliche to state that 'the child is the father of the man,' then it is equally banal to observe that the impressions we now have of what we once were, are the product of what we appear to have become. In this sense, the child is NOT the father of the man. The writing collected here should be understood in a similar fashion. Although these literary gleanings can be read from a position of 'innocence', their 'author' will derive far greater pleasure from watching their effect among those who insist on viewing 'him' as an organising principle around which they can structure their responses to these texts.
Stewart Home, London, January 1996
