At EAP, we believe it’s time to take a new approach. Time to take our own lives back from the intermediary ‘experts.’ Time to change the old, tired stories for new, living ones. Time to look at our world in a different way. Whether they’re about cooking, comic books, Christianity, or anything else, our books do that. It’s reveling in our everyday life. Making a living, not a killing. Reorganizing our lives on a human scale. Dreaming how we want our lives and our world to be.
We’re named for the classic film by Luis Buñuel. And like that film, we say, “Just open the door.”
THE EVERYDAY OVER THE TRANSCENDENT.
(Reaching for the stars is all very well and good, but you can get a lot more done by taking care of those around you on the ground.)
MUTUALITY OVER HIERARCHY
(We believe that society must be restructured on a basis of Mutuality. We believe Hierarchy is a tool, not a way of life. We believe in situational hierarchy–and that’s it.)
EQUITY OVER POWER
(The present structure of Power Over All needs to be brought completely into the light, and its true impracticality as a way forward revealed. We all believe with all our hearts that we need a new, more practicable structure based on Equity.)
THE SEARCH FOR TRUTH TOGETHER OVER THE SCRAMBLE FOR VICTORY APART
(Competition should be as situational as hierarchy. We think anyone looking objectively at our world today can see it’s gotten out of control. Competititon is all very well in its place–but it has to stay in its place.)
JAM TODAY OVER JAM TOMORROW
(We’ve had enough of mooning over Jam Tomorrow. We want to go to work cooking up Jam Today.)
