Adbusters #161

Adbusters is an international not-for-profit collective based in the US. They have been active since 1989 and been involved with campaigns like Occupy Wall Street and Buy Nothing Day. 

Their goal? "A total reinvention of the political and cultural playbook - to discover new ways to live, love and think."

From the publisher:


The Nope/Hope issue

The planetary endgame is upon us. Hope rests with adopting a handful of...ideas so fundamental, so profound that a sane sustainable future is unthinkable without them.

But if we can’t manage to hatch a grand new narrative for humankind, we’ll be travelling down the highway to hell...The rumblings of optimism, on the other hand, are few. But they are mighty. If we’re going to have a shot at staving off the worst, it’s up to us to heed them.

In this explosive dark-vs-light issue we lay out twin visions of what’s to come. Will we get our sh*t together and act with urgency — or run this experiment of ours on Planet Earth permanently aground?

Jump on board, comrade. It’s an all-hands-on-deck kind of moment.
