  • The light at the end of the world: - Adbusters | Journal of the mental environment
    of a billion dollars has received considerable attention and resulted in a greater mediatized sensation In our contemporary moment it is common to draw attention to interesting points of attrition and sensationalism rather than examining adequate scientific options or answers Their refusal is the beginning of something new According to different reports there is dissension yet unanimity among the citizens of the Lax Kw alaams Nation Deeper questions emerge from their rejection of the proposal Can we shift our perception of money and profit to include natural wealth and biological profit Why can t our markets become objects of real profit Trees are the answer A healthy ocean is the answer Wildlife roaming freely is the answer Abundant fish runs are the answer Yet we do not see the yearly growth of a tree or the yearly health of the ocean the yearly jump in the natural yield of an island as objects of real profit We hear a lot these days about oil and energy projects all over the world about the urgent need to create markets where markets do not yet exist But what if those markets already exist What if we give authority to The Natural Market and begin to hedge our decisions on the prosperity of that market rather than the money market What might such a shift in economic consciousness manifest How might it contribute to a world where the very idea of profit morphs into something deeper and more profound The time has come to demand more from markets We want a life for our children and a healthy environment We want multiple generations to reap the benefits of our technological breakthroughs We want a stop to runaway climate change These are not mutually exclusive ideas They are inclusive symbiotic and realistic But first

  • The postmodern, in theory. - Adbusters | Journal of the mental environment
    all of life is registered as simulation Freedom is a moot point because what used to be known as freedom cannot be known in the pomo it can only be repeated or copied in an infinite chain or referents to a past definition that was never experienced The pomo mind witnesses life past future and present as form It is alienated from the actuality of existence and resists consequence favoring ambivalence but still considers itself to be the result of phenomenal force Politics becomes an everyday virtue rarely practiced but consistently preached In suspended animation the whole of consciousness is consumed by the culture of the spectacle For the first time in recorded history the global is achieved Michael Rattray FROM Adbusters 120 Manifesto for World Revolution Part 3 Order this issue Subscribe to Adbusters Facebook Twitter Google Pinterest BDS On Campus To be a part of and not apart Also In This Magazine What now Only an angry tide of out of control youth can bring the world to its senses August 6 2015 Heavy Reader 1990 Serbia the simple enjoyments of life a can of meat a bit of vodka August 5 2015 A new quest The grand

  • Cuddling - Adbusters | Journal of the mental environment
    part of a social justice group we were travelling with Azin a young Afghan woman and her children to visit her husband A year earlier due to public pressure over the imprisoning of children the government had temporarily released mothers and children but not men so that women like Azin were out on their own with no assistance In this year since being released since seeing her husband she had learnt to drive in order to get back The Centre was notorious for its violence and secrecy all press was banned from even the perimeter of the Centre My memories of this place are of an endless series of what seemed like psychological and arbitrary games in order to get through and visit people inside of wire cages in succession where you could wait in isolation for up to half an hour each of being frisked and stamped with a smiley face in UV ink on your hand as if entering a night club The guards ask how are you today as if they re just cashiers at a supermarket One day I lose it and break down while waiting in the final cage so that when I emerge I say I m waiting to speak to a man who has sewn his own mouth shut How do you think I feel I am not given approval to visit that day Outside we meet with the family again more rice and tea The two twins in matching Kmart outfits love to run up and down a large rusting pipe the daughter helps her mother with translation and food the second oldest Akhmed fidgets nervously on his own Then there is the youngest There are so many memories I have of this time and place They remind me constantly of the urgency for justice But of all the memories there is one so visceral that comes to me from nowhere I m standing by the sea or in a beautiful patch of forest lost in quiet contemplation on a plane looking down on the clouds and there he is the youngest of the family I feel it in my whole body what it felt like to cuddle and hold that youngest child He was two or three still in nappies He didn t really speak yet he should have been able to at his age When he cried tears rolled down his face and he grimaced but he did not cry with sound He seemed never to laugh also and never to fuss We took turns to hold him and transferred from his mother to sister to one of us he didn t ever protest like other children might In my arms he didn t like other children wriggle around He lay still cradled attaching to me like a baby possum or a koala He seemed distant worrying He was it seemed traumatized He was also very cuddly I have no other word for it I couldn t do anything to
