The revolutions, uprisings and revolts will continue.
They will grow stronger too. For the social organism is rising up against a future that does not compute… and we will keep rising up until the final decisive battle for the imagination of the world.
At Adbusters, we are working to imagine how a global uprising could crystallize into a united front. In our brainstorming sessions, one likely scenario we’re thinking through is the birth of global political party that sweeps into Parliament in countries with fair elections and pulls off insurrections in countries without. A World Party that embodies the anarchist principles of our ancient uprising for people’s democracy… a global front that respects local autonomy while also learning how to finally implement the concrete global bottom-up solutions—like economic degrowth, a Robin Hood Tax and a True Cost market regime—to the spiritual, ecological and political catastrophes plaguing humanity.
Humanity’s collective unconscious is yearning for an uprising that unites our species against Earth’s avowed enemy—the corporatists. But this time around the revolt will crystallize around memes, and not leaders. Our generation’s great task is to find words in every language for, and to fight in our own way for, this new universalist-leaderless politics – a hybrid blue-green-black politics that mobilizes The People in Cairo as well as it does in Beijing and New York City toward liberty, equality, and community.
