Here’s a hint of the audacious plans we’ve laid for the Year of the Tiger . . .

With the springtime publication of our latest book, we’re unleashing an all-out metamemetic insurrection.

Our strategy is to drop seven mindbombs into the global imagination — ideas so timely, systemic and profound that a sane sustainable future is unthinkable without them.

And in September, we’ll take a crack at catalyzing a revolutionary big-bang moment on a scale the world has never seen.

We are The Third Force.

We’re about to give you the codes.

Are you ready?

A New Structure of Feeling

Adbusters #149 The Re-enchantment of the Political LeftGet this issue

Nobody quite knows why our Western egos are so big.

Maybe it’s got something to do with the fact that, more than many other cultures, we live inside our heads. And when you live inside your head, then it’s basically all about you, you, you.

Narcissism, ego, and hyper-individuality are gnawing away inside us. In their outward forms and manifestations they’re clogging the sky and tainting the water, making the planet unlivable. To survive this century of crisis, we have to come up with a new tone, a new ambiance, a new sensuality. A new structure of feeling.

Can we learn to live suddenly without thinking?

Polish Border - Comfortably Numb

"Children of Men Intrudes Upon Reality: Poland Border Crisis" is the latest in a series of videos I've made during the pandemic. Since we seem to be living in the Cuaron film, from time to time I document the intrusion into our lives of the "Children of Men" cinematic universe. I can't post it anywhere -- the vids get instant copyright strikes and instant takedowns -- so I thought of you.

Storms are building. Floods are surging. Wildfires are blazing. Heat and drought are desiccating the earth. People are suffering, their livelihoods combusting like so much dredged-up fossil matter.

Corporate Capitalism Kills

December 13, 2021

“A corporation has no heart, no soul, no morals. When it hurts people or damages the environment, it will feel no sorrow or remorse because it is intrinsically unable to.”

“Live Every Moment Dangerously”

Unprime Day

Prime Day, Amazon’s yearly deal-hawking hoopla for its swindled subscribers, begins on June 21. And there’s never been a better occasion to cancel your Prime membership and boycott Amazon and all its subsidiaries (which include AbeBooks, Amazon Studios, Audible, Book Depository, ComiXology, Goodreads, IMDb, Twitch, Whole Foods, Zappos, and dozens more).

Prime Day, Amazon’s yearly deal-hawking hoopla for its swindled subscribers, begins on June 21.

And there’s never been a better occasion to cancel your Prime membership and boycott Amazon and all its subsidiaries (which include AbeBooks, Amazon Studios, Audible, Book Depository, ComiXology, Goodreads, IMDb, Twitch, Whole Foods, Zappos, and dozens more).

As you can tell from the list above, Amazon owns a huge number of companies whose products and services millions use every single day.

. . . whether they’re walking to work in their Zappos shoes with an Audible audiobook in their ears, or watching streams on Twitch while scarfing down premium Whole Foods goodies, or binging Amazon Studios–produced TV shows while looking up the name of “that guy who looks like that other guy” on IMDb. And that’s true even when you leave Amazon itself out of the tally.

The point, in short, is not just that megacorporations are taking over the world, but that one monolithic corporation named Amazon controls an ever-increasing share of our mental environment.

Think that sounds exaggerated? Think again.

Amazon’s dominance is funded by an illegal price-rigging racket that disguises the costs of its “free shipping” promise to Prime members. As a result, it has oodles of capital to spend on ventures well beyond its e-commerce perview. (Remember when all it sold was books?)

Today, Amazon has its finger in cloud computing, streaming, electronics, home security, A.I., surveillance — and yes, even the defense industry. (Oh, and did I mention that it’s now a bank, too?) As one of the ten biggest corporations on the planet, it’s power to influence you is therefore enormous. It’s meddling in areas of your life you’re not even aware of.

With all this, what are the chances that Amazon has your best interest at heart? Ask yourself: Are you being empowered — or exploited?

Don’t be naive — after all, we’re talking about the same company that is set on hanging workers out to dry, chucking the environment in the bin, forcing you to foot its tax bill, and distorting democracy itself. And it’s no friend of whistleblowers, either.

It doesn’t have to be this way. Amazon’s fate lies in one person’s hands . . . one person with the power to make or break the gargantuan tech tyrant, by either shopping from it — or dropping it altogether.

And that person is you.

We’ve long called for unswooshing the swoosh. This Prime Day, ditch your membership and boycott the mother of all tech-corp crooks (and every one of her brats).

It’s time to #unprime Prime — not just for one day, but for good.
