By Guy Debord

Of the 3 autonomous texts through man Debord integrated the following, have been first released as pamphlets, whereas the 3rd was once written in 1971 for inclusion in a projected 13th factor of the Situationist International's magazine which by no means seemed as a result of the group's dissolution.

Despite the seeming variety of the topics discussed—the Watts riots in ‘The Decline and Fall of the “Spectacular” Commodity-Economy’ (1965); the disintegration of bureaucratic energy in ‘The Explosion element of Ideology in China’ (1967); toxins and its illustration in ‘A unwell Planet’ (1971)—all 3 texts take care of the various sorts of the ‘spectacle’ and its repercussions. And regardless of the dates in their composition, all 3 stay startlingly correct today.

—Alice Debord, 2004
