Bad Subjects (more formally Bad Subjects: Political Education For Everyday Life and sometimes The Bad Subjects Collective) is a research collaborative that operates generally out of California as part of the open access electronic publishing cooperative EServer.org. Together, the collaborative creates and publishes an online zine of cultural and political criticism to promote critical thinking and public education about the political implications of everyday life. Originally founded at UC Berkeley in September 1992 as a collection of leftist critiques of popular culture written by college students and published as a Gopher service, Bad Subjects may be the longest continuously-running publication on the internet.

Famous quotes containing the words subjects and/or bad:
“Intellectuals have opinions on subjects they just heard about five minutes ago.”
—Mason Cooley (b. 1927)
“Out of the thousand writers huffing and puffing through movieland there are scarcely fifty men and women of wit or talent. The rest of the fraternity is deadwood. Yet, in a curious way, there is not much difference between the product of a good writer and a bad one. They both have to toe the same mark.”
—Ben Hecht (18931964)
