    to altering the width of streets and the heights of buildings and the colors and shapes of doors and windows to radically reinterpreting world events such as the 1965 Watts riots in Los Angeles the Internationale Situationniste the journal the Situationists published between 1958 and 1969 was a sometimes profound sometimes absurd laboratory of provocation and détournement Once Debord altered a famous drawing of Lenin by placing a bare breasted woman on his forehead with the caption The Universe Turns on the Tips of Breasts Debord had his book Mémoires bound in heavy sandpaper so that when it was placed on the shelves of libraries it would destroy other books One famous détournement happened in the Notre Dame cathedral on Easter Sunday in 1950 With thousands of people watching a Lettrist provocateur dressed as a Dominican monk slipped onto the altar and delivered a sermon accusing the Catholic Church of the deadly diversion of the force of life in favor of an empty heaven and then solemnly proclaimed that God is dead It was with this spirit of détournement that the Situationists invaded enemy territory and tried to devalue the currency of the spectacle And it was with this defiance that they intended to pull off a cultural revolution a gigantic turning around of the existing social world uncooling A century ago Mahatma Ghandi asked the people of India to boycott British salt and cloth and instead to make their own It was the beginning of the end for the British Empire Can we borrow a page from the past and boycott the corporate capital system into submission It would have to be like no other boycott in history We know that a company s most valuable and vulnerable asset is its brand image We also know that a brand crisis can bring a company swiftly to its knees So here s the big question can uncooling be one way for civil society to bring recalcitrant corporations to heel It would take politicizing every purchase we make constantly looking for opportunities to jam and having the courage to take them We d have to learn to live anew because our target corporate cool is a powerful force that surrounds us all the time First thousands then millions of people would need to start living viscerally strategically like a cat on the prowl Imagine each of us coming up with our personal boycott strategy our own bag of tricks and then adjusting our lifestyles in sometimes painful ways learning to live without foods and drinks we ve loved since we were kids finding local indie alternatives to brands we consume every day without a second thought shutting out familiar corporations that we ve dealt with for years Can we do this Can we play cat and mouse games with megacorps Outwit and outmaneuver them Can we then get millions of people simultaneously to ditch or switch brands Can we in a nutshell learn to live lives of spontaneous playful resistance cognitive

  • The Curfew - Adbusters | Journal of the mental environment
    went boating you and Louisa Ana and I William nodded Do you remember when that man asked to take a picture of us and Louisa didn t want him to The man on the pier I do And then he took the picture anyway and Louisa got angry but we were already out in the current and we didn t want to turn back I sometimes think Gerard had taken the bottle with him He took a swig from it I sometimes think if we had gone back then everything would have changed and she wouldn t have been shot William s mouth was dry The idea of Louisa was all close spaces distances thick smells It was inaccessible like the inside of a stone What is the method he asked The method for disgovernance Other revolutionary movements fail when they are found out This one just begins when they are found out It is impossible to stop because there are no ringleaders It is simple enough to describe in a phrase or two the whole extent of it Any member of the government any member of the police of the secret police all are targets You live your life and do nothing out of the ordinary But if at some moment you find yourself in a position to harm one of the targets you do Then you continue on as if nothing has happened You never go out of your way to make such an opportunity come to pass Not even one step out of your way And yet without exception the targets must each day place themselves in danger before the citizenry and cause such opportunities to exist One doesn t prepare oneself except mentally One never speaks of it except to spread the idea and that is better done by sheets of paper left here and there Gerard was silent for a minute He drummed his hand on the table He took another sip of wine The perfect crime consists of randomness you happen to be passing a table on which a diamond necklace is lying everyone has momentarily turned away you snatch the necklace and continue you are now the possessor of a diamond necklace Having randomly arrived there you had every reason to be in that place at that time as part of your routine You only ceased in the moment of the crime to be a thing apart from the background and immediately thereafter you returned to it The only thing the New State can do is to clamp down tighter and that only earns them more hate activates more of the population The method is reaching us here only now but it had been around for two years And a year ago do you remember what happened They disbanded the police Now only secret police Exactly and they never said why But a man I spoke to The door opened and a woman stuck her head through Gerard can you come I m

  • Diplomatic Tsunami - Adbusters | Journal of the mental environment
    underpriced natural gas to Israel A poll of Egyptians shows a majority opposed to the current peace treaty Israeli officials are describing this new trend of independent Egyptian foreign policy now responsive to the popular mood rather than to Israeli and US dictates as a national strategic threat Something parallel is occurring among the Palestinian factions and being reinforced by the Egyptian trend Without Mubarak and with no partner in Israel Abbas is isolated Hamas has lost its secure base in Syria provided by Asad and needing another major Arab state sponsor has looked to Egypt for help So for the first time both factions have found an ally in Egypt Unity will enable the Palestinian factions to hold elections increase their legitimacy press on with state building and make a credible statehood bid at the UN in September Hamas even appears to be ready to sign up to the PA s UN strategy The popular mood among Palestinians and in Egypt appears to have trumped the threat of the US pulling its aid to both the PA and the Egyptian leadership This is very bad news for Israel and the US The consequences of Netanyahu s intransigence Ehud Barak warned him that it would lead to a diplomatic tsunami are now being felt Israel has lost its chief regional allies including most significantly Egypt and the PA The Israeli occupation is now completely and manifestly dependent on US support Through the PA and Egyptian acquiescence Washington had been able to mask its dishonest role in backing Israel The mask has been removed and the charade cannot be maintained for much longer Jonathan Cook is a journalist and writer based in Nazareth Israel His latest book is Disappearing Palestine Israel s Experiments in Human Despair FROM Adbusters 96 Apocalyptic Boredom
