Hans Widmer (born 1947), know also by his pseudonym P.M. (taken from the most common initials in the Swiss telephone directory, mostly spelled in lowercase, p.m.) is a Swiss author.[1] He is best known for his 1983 anarchist / anti-capitalist social utopian book bolo'bolo, published with the paranoia city verlag of Zürich.

An urban "bolo"


The title of this book refers to the bolo, or an autonomous community corresponding to the anthropological unit of a tribe (a few hundred individuals). This would be the basic social unit in an envisioned utopian-ecological future; its name is an example of a word from the constructed language (or rather, a basic vocabulary of about thirty words) called asa'pili.
