As stated on page 1, here is the purpose of this publication: "We are as gods and might as well get good at it. So far remotely done power and glory--as via government, big business, formal education, church--has succeeded to the point where gross defects obscure actual gains. In response to this dilemma and to these gains a realm of intimate, personal power is developing--power of the individual to conduct his own education, find his own inspiration, shape his own environment, and share his adventure with whoever is interested. Tools that aid this process are sought and promoted by the WHOLE EARTH CATALOG

I cured my WARTS with a Swiss ARMY KNIFE. A true testimonial by Malaclypse the Younger of San Francisco--Plagued with Planter's Warts for over a year, and advised by the medical profession that regular medication is GENERALLY HOPELESS, I cured my WARTS with a Swiss ARMY KNIFE and voodoo. Twice a week for twelve months I cursed the warts and made them feel unwelcome. During that time, I took my stainless steel Swiss ARMY KNIFE and dug at them relentlessly. They have now more or less DISAPPEARED leaving only gaping holes and volcano-like craters on my calouses. I recommend this cure for any person with a cool hand, a knowledge of voodoo and a Swiss ARMY KNIFE. A Swiss ARMY KNIFE may be purchased at your nearest Swiss ARMY KNIFE dealer.
