  • A Different Kind of Reality - Adbusters | Journal of the mental environment
    life Because we do not come into this planet simply to develop just like that indiscriminately We come into this planet to be happy Because life is short and it slips away from us And no material belonging is worth as much as life and this is fundamental Life is going to slip through my fingers working and over working in order to be able to consume more The consumer society is the engine of today If consumption is paralyzed the economy stops and if you stop the economy the ghost of stagnation appears for each one of us Yet it is this hyper consumption that is harming the planet And this hyper consumption needs to be generated making things that have a short shelf life in order to sell a lot Thus a light bulb cannot last longer than 1000 hours But there are light bulbs that last 100 000 hours But these cannot be manufactured because the problem is the market because we have to work and we have to sustain a civilization of use and discard and so we are trapped in a vicious cycle These are problems of a political nature which are showing us that it s time to start fighting for a different culture I m not talking about returning to the days of the caveman or erecting a monument to backwardness But we cannot continue like this indefinitely being ruled by the market On the contrary we have to rule over the market This is why I say in my humble way of thinking that the problem we are facing is political The old thinkers Epicurus Seneca and even the Aymara put it this way A poor person is not someone who has little but one who needs infinitely more and more This is a cultural issue So I salute the efforts and agreements being made And I will adhere to them as a ruler I know some things I m saying are not easy to digest But we must realize that the water crisis and the aggression to the environment are not the cause The cause is the model of civilization that we have created And the thing we have to re examine is our way of life I belong to a small country well endowed with natural resources for life In my country there are a bit more than three million people But there are about 13 million cows some of the best in the world And about eight or ten million excellent sheep My country is an exporter of food dairy meat It is a low relief plain and almost ninety percent of the land is fertile My fellow workers fought hard for the eight hour workday And now they are making that six hours But the person who works six hours gets two jobs therefore he works longer than before But why Because he needs to make monthly payments for the motorcycle the car more and more payments and

  • Post Sushi - Adbusters | Journal of the mental environment
    Last Wild Food writes that globally we catch and consume 170 billion pounds of wild fish per year an amount equivalent in weight to the entire human population of China Greenberg points out that we would need four or five oceans to meet the appetites of the world s seven billion humans If a human controlled demolition of wild fish stocks seems shocking it would seem even more so to previous generations Wild fish to quote Greenberg seemed a crop harvested from the sea that magically grew itself back every year A crop that never required planting For our ancestors the very idea of us humans fishing the ocean to the point of collapse would seem preposterous The oceans took months even years to sail across The oceans were the very definition of vastness But when a single bluefin tuna can fetch over 10 000 market forces become a deadly current that our oceans most delectable creatures must struggle against Can we reverse that current somehow Or is it too late now FROM Adbusters 94 Post Normal Order this issue Subscribe to Adbusters Facebook Twitter Google Pinterest To The Barricades Barefoot Economics Also In This Magazine Paradigm Shift The great
