Adbusters - Issue 150
Adbusters' manifesto follows as:
We clean up the toxic areas of our mental environment
. . . make the price of every product tell the ecological truth
. . . reverse the upward flow of wealth
. . . punish every corporation that betrays the public trust
. . . make secrecy taboo
. . . bend the straight line in a wobbly new direction
. . . discover new ways to live, love and think.
This issue is asks if Capitalism will implode. Will the coronavirus spell the end of meat? Cash? The movie theatre? The shopping mall? The classroom? The business trip? The office? The handshake? The hug? Neoliberalism? Globalization? Hyper-individualism? Romance? Your career? Is capitalism the real virus? Will this be the end of civilization as we know it? Amid the ashes, could we build a sane, sustainable future that computes?
There's no going back. We are in an era of narrative collapse, and we can rewrite the story. This moment of crisis is full of potential for destruction . . . but also for renewal. In this issue, we get to the bottom of the deep questions begged by this mess we're in.
