In this brief pamphlet, the anonymous author – likely a member of More to Come, a Bay-Area anarchist / prositu collective active in the early and mid-1970s – recounts a conversation with Tony Verlaan, a former member of the American Section of the Situationist International. The text is highly critical, with the author noting that “In the San Francisco Bay Area in the years 1964 to 1972, their (the S.I.’s) practical achievements are nil”. He goes on to criticize Isaac Cronin and others for their obsession with theoretical considerations and similar lack of practice.
