  • Three waves of revolt - Adbusters | Journal of the mental environment
    then forgives it Like the traditional strike both angles of debt resistance target the system of production now epitomized by Goldman Sachs rather than Ford But such tactics also as Friedrich Nietzsche and more recently David Graeber have argued undermine the powerful social and moral bonds that enmesh us in the system Anti debt activism thus strikes simultaneously at the material and the ideological at capitalism s brains as well as its mind Lifeblood and Soul Between old and new a startling third answer emerges from Silvio Gesell a rediscovered anarchist economist from the early 20th century Gesell urges us to aim the death blow at money at its immaterial immortal status In all financial systems since ancient times money has been granted the magical and exclusive right never to grow old And when money is deified in this way it will always result in economic depression The rich hoard while the poor starve money grows scarce people spend less workers can t find jobs because possessing immortal money in a bank is always and in every way preferable to possessing material goods in a warehouse So why not secularize money Cast it out of heaven return it to the mortal realm At the peak of the first Great Depression a hard hit small town in Austria did just that Modeled on Gesell s proposal each bill of Wörgl s currency lost 1 of its value every month Now that there was a powerful incentive to spend locally and quickly the town experienced an economic miracle within months Wörgl was thriving unemployment was nonexistent and major development projects were paid for and completed When over 200 communities moved to introduce their own Wörgl style currencies Austria s central bank declared the Gesellian currencies illegal and a threat to the authority

  • Archetypes of Dissent - Adbusters | Journal of the mental environment
    awake this noble youth will be amazed to realize how long and how seriously it has been applauding such colossal inanities It requires courage to be a romantic because one must take a risk Lefebvre concluded Introduction to Modernity by saying there was a new attitude drifting in the breeze revolts acts of insubordination protests abstentions rebellions were there and felt Stendhal was a man of the late twentieth century His romanticism affirmed disparate elements of society Perhaps their historical counterparts today are the downsized post work victims of a right sizing capitalist corporate ethic which sets workers free as business cycles dip and as austerity measures grip and the maggots now constitute a huge mass of sub under and unemployed workers who are a relative surplus population And they work if they can find it insecurely at McJobs on temporary contracts on workfare programs and in internships Many are students and post students who know that before them lies a dark deep abyss that s about to engulf them a black hole of the labor market and debt This ragged array of people now attempts to live out within bourgeois society challenging its moral economic order surviving in its core like a maggot in an apple trying to eat their way out from the inside Great Escapers take to flight as a form of fight and express a spirit of critical positivity They have absolutely no truck with existing society and go it alone or alone with others to create alternative radical communities and communes frequently self sufficient both in the city and the countryside Their modus operandi is precisely the opposite s of Kafka s K s Instead of trying to enter the inner recesses of the castle of the citadel of contemporary capitalism instead of trying to find doors to knock on and people to complain to demanding their rights Great Escapers burrow out under the castle s ramparts and ask for nothing They dig tunnels and construct exit trails they organize with great caution invisible escape committees as they have at Tarnac France and they hope their tunnels will be long enough and sufficiently deep enough to reach freedom ubiquitous enough to converge with other tunnels And if enough people dig the surface superstructure might one day give away entirely after everybody has left What remains will implode in one great big heap of rubble like the Berlin Wall The Great Escape suggests something subterranean something organized and tactical something practical and concrete It begins below and at ground level and doesn t float up in the air abstractly plonking itself down undemocratically A lot of liberals and radicals still believe that the central object of any struggle isn t to orchestrate escape tunnels but to destroy the social structures and institutions that underwrite human captivity that define the castle on the hill They say that one needs to abolish the conditions of mass subordination destroy the logic of prison camps as well as the processes
