Reviews

Janet Zandy had this to say about the first edition: "In The Conspiracy of Good Taste, Stefan Szczelkun writes forcefully of the oppression of classism on working-class people: 'What I learned was the central and murderous denial of our intellectual capacity which is at the heartless core of class oppression 'Calling for a 'liberatory people-orientated culture, ' Szczelkun urges working-class people to reconnect 'to the hidden working-class personal and cultural histories that produced us and find ways to heal ourselves from the terrible legacy of hurt left by class oppression.' "

"The Conspiracy of Good Taste is one of those books you read and put down inspired and empowered. As working class people we can find ourselves going against our own instinct regarding class; as a result of the media bombardment against our identity .The constant mockery of class masks the power and importance of our class across the world and through all creative cultural spheres. Stefan Szczelkun's book the Conspiracy of Good taste sheds light on the way class oppression is worked and managed against us.
This book as been an important part of my learning. Hatred of an oppressor class comes through education not from inarticulated frustration." Brandon Spivey. 2016
