Two texts by Shutes, an active participant in the Berkeley "pro-situationist" scene, and onetime member of the group Point-Blank!. Discusses two recent California phenomena from a situationist point of view: Jim Jones' Peoples' Temple cult and the assassination of Harvey Milk. "The essential error made everywhere concerning the phenomenon of the modern cult is to pretend as though it were a complete aberration, something out of this world and fundamentally in contradiction with the existing forms of society."
