For over 15 years, Reverend Billy and the Stop Shopping Choir have preached against consumerism and militarism as the devils of contemporary society.

The Earth Wants YOU is a motivational handbook for earth activists, filled with inspired visions of a wild, creative, Earth-led cultural revolution.
