  • A new religion - Adbusters | Journal of the mental environment
    etc produced in the past God is the sacred occurrence of humans gathering to create and co create something bigger than themselves beyond egotistic and narcissistic motives where of course the Internet and participatory cultural manifestations such as Burning Man are perfect candidates Just walk into cathedrals sit down and just ask yourself why you and your friends cannot build a building like this today THE INTERNET AGE IS SO NEW SO VAST SO UNLIKE THE PAST THAT A NEW SPIRITUALITY MUST BE CREATED FOR IT I think God is always something much bigger than we are and I want to create together with other people who share that belief with me I want to create a road out of individualism Because individualism is exactly what is now killing the planet It makes us exploit everything that s laying ahead of us because if we re gonna die soon anyway we might as well exploit as much as we can before we die And so we end up with a Cartesian worldview It was no better than Christianity In Christianity one of the last things Jesus said to his disciples was I will always be with you meaning that the Holy Ghost is the manifestation of God when the believers are together The Internet is 3 billion people connected together in real time and if that isn t the holy spirit then I don t know what is Adapted from Swedish cyberphilosopher Alexander Bard s Syntheism Creating God in the Internet FROM Adbusters 118 Field Guide to Virtual Warfare Order this issue Subscribe to Adbusters Facebook Twitter Google Pinterest Redeployment Resisting the Demon Also In This Magazine Leviathan The end of history has arrived and it is in post Soviet Russia September 22 2015 Aware The decoupling of intelligence from

  • Great again? - Adbusters | Journal of the mental environment
    on giving the whole enterprise their professional seal of approval The do no harm ethic of an entire profession was blatantly sacrificed When the New York Times did an exposé on how the APA colluded with the CIA this topic had a brief moment in the sun But like Abu Ghraib Guantanamo Bay and the black sites it soon faded away just another passing outrage to take note of And yet this episode reveals something very ominous about America If an entire profession with hundreds of thousands of members can sanction State torture the way the APA did then America is much closer to being a Fascist State than anyone could ever have imagined Down the road if there is a major 1929 downturn in the economy or if Israel attacks Iran China flexes its military muscle or if ISIS finds a way of terrorizing American cities with lethal drones it is easy to imagine how the neocon right could whip the whole nation into a hyper vengeful mode Kono Matsu FROM Adbusters 122 Manifesto for World Revolution Part 5 Order this issue Subscribe to Adbusters Facebook Twitter Google Pinterest Falling in love What is left of the Left Also

  • Hidden Potencies - Adbusters | Journal of the mental environment
    embedded in the interconnected global machine and social choices are submitted to psychic automatisms embedded in social discourse and in the social imagination But the depth of the catastrophe represented by the collapse is awakening hidden potencies of the social brain The financial collapse marks the beginning of an insurrection whose first glimpses were seen in London Athens and Rome in December 2010 and which became massive in the May June acampada in Spain in the four August nights of rage in the English suburbs and in the wave of strikes and occupations in the US The European collapse is not simply the effect of a crisis that is only economic and financial this is a crisis of imagination about the future as well The Maastricht rules have become unquestionable dogmas algorithmic formulae and magical spells guarded by the high priests of the European Central Bank and promoted by stockbrokers and advisors Financial power is based on the exploitation of precarious cognitive labor the general intellect in its present form of separation from the body The general intellect in its present configuration is fragmented and dispossessed of self perception and self consciousness Only the conscious mobilization of the erotic body of the general intellect only the poetic revitalization of language will open the way to the emergence of a new form of social autonomy Franco Bifo Berardi is an important thinker of the Italian Autonomia Movement In the 1970s Berardi fled to Paris for political reasons and became a close friend and collaborator of Félix Guattari philosopher of schizoanalysis Berardi is a media theorist and media activist who currently teaches Social History of the Media at Accademia di Brera Milan This essay is adapted from his newest book The Uprising On Poetry and Finance to be published by Semiotext e

  • A New Way of Being - Adbusters | Journal of the mental environment
    is where the real escape is to be found Here is where the real healing happens in our relationships with ourselves and in our relationships with those closest to us in society Here is where the greatest the only real political revolution can occur two by two each to each and finally to all that is now and all that is to come My friend says that when the end of the world arrives and all the zombies come out he s going to head upstate He loves the land He believes there to be stores of ammunition hidden among the Catskill Mountains He loves the land I ask him to sleep beside me when it s night because it helps me to deal with all the shadows As of yet he skirts the issue After all he has shadows too I m not going to tell you my friend s name don t go looking for any of the usual romantic odes describing his physical attributes either Similar to me he is highly intelligent highly fucked up by his passage through his time before the Park and was highly neglected by the clockmakers who wound and controlled that time We were and still remain an unfolding experiment of sorts within this beautiful and sometimes troubled country of ours where we re testing the very limits and definitions of our selflessness and our capacity to love The weather is turbulent raging windy and wild sunny days can quickly drown under midnight storms but whenever I find myself looking back over the stretch of this country I see the fields advancing into their natural blossom and bloom the early bushes of overgrown rose the starting stalks of tall and similar grass the paled and yellow corn along the receding distance have been husbanded back to more natural fields Violets neighbor gladiola dandelions run free modified and manipulated canola passes from our view and now peaceful confederations of Blue Hopi and Hickory King purple corn beside white corn maize their way along the reddish hills It s been seven months since my fellow refugees and I have attempted our escape from the American nowhere Many of the people I had started out with have since left some have left returned only to leave again and then return new passengers shipwrecked far from the mainland on decaying planks have climbed onto the deck The group that first boarded and remains aboard is small Forty maybe fifty In the seven months since our Occupation we have watched our society and our home in Zuccotti be brutally destroyed we ve been forced to wander out into the winter exiles we have sheltered in churches vacant homes and hostels until we found ourselves facing their closed doors we have slept outside along the walls of banks and then at the seeping sore of the great historical ulcer on the corner of Wall Street and Nassau until one morning bullhorns announced that the law has come and
