  • To be a part of, and not apart - Adbusters | Journal of the mental environment
    couldn t help but look up periodically as I read I kept hearing footsteps in the distance I also noticed the nuances of life apparent as people bought their children second hand bikes clothing etc it all seemed so American and non threatening I went back to flipping through my Livro when I heard a knock at my window I wasn t startled just pleasantly surprised It was a Spanish lady maybe 34 or so I asked her what was up she smiled and said that she needed money to buy food for her and her young son who I didn t see I did what I usually did and handed her a couple crumpled one dollar bills and some pocket change I give people money here and there I don t care what they use it for hopefully it does something down the line She thanked me and I told her no problemo Sometime later this well dressed man and his blond female companion walked up to my car The man asked me if I had a wife or girlfriend I replied yes My first thought was to ask what they were getting at They replied that they were selling some make up products at a greatly discounted rate I said I d have to pass on it and they were off I went back to reading my bullshit but I kept thinking about my experiences in that parking lot I greatly enjoyed observing the people in the parking lot but I really dug interacting with them even more A letter submitted by Victor DaSilva FROM Adbusters 120 Manifesto for World Revolution Part 3 Order this issue Subscribe to Adbusters Facebook Twitter Google Pinterest The postmodern in theory Resisting the sharing economy Also In This Magazine What now Only

  • Heavy Reader: 1948 - Adbusters | Journal of the mental environment
    was the largest Palestinian refugee camp It was besieged and starved People ate grass and over 200 died of starvation Now the fanatical forces calling themselves the Islamic State entered the camp burned Palestinian flags and spread their terror on the remaining civilians Necks were cut and women were raped Different but connected perpetrators These and other thoughts race through the mind from 11 000 meters above the ground on my way to Paris A flight was canceled and I had to fly to Athens then Larnaca Cyprus then Paris Larnaca airport is full of Israelis because that is the closest European airport to Lod renamed Ben Gurion Airport Cyprus is used also as a transit point for the tens of thousands of Mossad agents that travel back and forth to some 140 other countries Countless teams of assassins passed through this airport I left behind I also think of other massacres committed in places I know well like Kenya or places I do not know well like the deliberate downing of an Iranian civilian aircraft by the US and that of a German airplane by a terrorist on French soil But then I thought how can I gain a bigger perspective on our lives and all these tragedies Here we are tiny creatures among 7 billion humans that have spread around and damaged this beautiful blue planet A planet that is small in a small inconspicuous solar system one of billions of solar systems in this galaxy itself a small galaxy among countless galaxies Maybe we take ourselves too seriously I thought How can I help get people to know that there is enough resources to feed everyone now over a billion go hungry The scientist in me wants to find logical explanations for why people kill each other and do not simply share and care for one another I try to convince myself with my own words to visitors to Palestine lighting a candle is better than cursing the darkness first do no harm travel the path of your conscience even if few are doing it etc Maybe lack of sleep makes my mind wonder into Buddhist philosophies joyful participation in the sorrows of this world and to mystic philosophies Rumi s words come slushing around my brain These thoughts are like shields to help us in this stark reality The reality is that the vast majority of people on this airplane and the thousands I left behind at the airport do not know and do not care Yarmouk Deir Yassin Tantura Sabra Shatila and others represent a heritage for us Palestinians and the few other humans who care A country was robbed 7 million of us are refugees or displaced people Zionists are happy they succeeded in getting Arabs and Muslims to kill each other whether in Yemen or Syria As the pilot announces descent to Paris I think of the French equivalent of the Balfour Declaration Jules Cambon s declaration of French support for Zionism was

  • Slow down and think - Adbusters | Journal of the mental environment
    read fast talk fast write fast do fast They write their emails so quickly often during class I can see the time date stamp that they have no time for a salutation correct grammar or complete sentences Cant find due date for the paper When is it I teach environmental science For 14 short weeks we discuss climate change energy agriculture biodiversity and ecosystems natural resource and environmental justice I try to keep it as light as I can but every day I feel the world crashing down around me as I walk them through the climate data from ice cores in Antarctica now going back almost one million years I tell them about M King Hubbert s curve and our energy crisis that will overturn their lives if climate change doesn t do it first I show them harvesting trends for global fish stocks and pictures of the oceans that have turned into plastic soup I explain to them why the Green Revolution in agriculture is the green as in money kind not the green as in organic kind Together we learn how people around the world are having their lives cut short by water scarcity persistent chemical pollutants and crop failures in soils nuked by pesticides I encourage them to take some time to think about the dynamics that drive these problems and some possible solutions Then I instruct them to go forward in their lives thoughtfully with purpose and help pull us back from the brink I wish I could go back to their first grade teachers drowning in the first wave of No Child Left Behind requirements and beg them to resist the onslaught of timed assessments Ignore them subvert them transform them do anything possible to avoid putting these kids on the fast track to
