Unfair to Apes. Thomas JOHNS.

Unfair to Apes

London: Scientific Socialist Progressive Party Publications, 1961. First edition. A small format booklet (5” x 7 ¼”), 89, [3] pp. Cheap paper browning, some dark offsetting to rear wrapper, small stain to upper spine, VG. Only four copies in OCLC.

A scarce satire apparently concocted by the Britons Publishing Society and written pseudonymously. The author mocks liberal notions equality, egalitarianism, progressivism, socialism, etc., by arguing that women, negroes, apes, germs and pests all have equal rights. "Progress consists of three stages: (1) Natural Instinct to National Adult Bisexual Human Egalitarianism (2) National Adult Bisexual Human Egalitarianism to World Omni-Animal Egalitarianism (3) World Omni-Animal Egalitarianism to Ultimate Universal Completely Congruent Homogenous Egalitarianism." The bottom of each page features a slogan such as, “Race Haters are Fascist are Sinister,” “Race Hate is a Filthy Swindle,” “Race is Filthy and Seedy,” etc. “Thomas Johns” is likely a pseudonym. The booklet was distributed in the U.S. by the National Renaissance Party. Item #07136
