Hey all you mind-journeyers out there,
Adbusters #110, the penultimate installment of the Epic Human Journey series, hits newsstands worldwide Monday!
Of this series so far, this one is our staff favourite. With punchy, provocative spreads, riveting visual essays and more grit than we've ever delivered on, Adbusters #110 addresses the big questions you're always chewing on, and dives deeply into the hidden recesses of human history.
We’ve now reached Part 4, Autumn, of this epic story of humanity.
Autumn marks the moment in history where an empire segues toward decline. “God is dead”…was this the moment when we took our turn? Or was it the advertising industry, and the endless false desires that now rule us, which have led to civilizational dénouement? Perhaps the heart of the beast, to which we must drive a stake, is the very logic of the capitalist algorithm itself…
In Adbusters #110 we track the waves of spirit emerging in history – from Jesus, Mohammed and Buddha to Futurism, Hiroshima and onwards into the new paradigm. In our search for the solution to the human dilemma … we found some exciting clues in unsuspected places.
Clues (featured in this issue):
- #RadicalTransparency – a new human right
- The Mental Environmentalism movement kicks off!
- How will it turn out between political Islam and the West?
- Advertisements cause brain damage
- The New Revolution Algorithm by Kalle Lasn
- Capitalism and the Destruction of Life on Earth by economist Richard Smith
- Psycho-collapse vs. Eco-collapse, pyramid vs. rhizome
- There will be blowback – a Wall Street premonition
- The Solution to the Human Dilemma
Meanwhile, here at Adbusters HQ we’re working away on issue #111, the final chapter of our Epic Human Journey Series where we take a glimpse into humanity’s winter. It’s going to be unlike anything we’ve ever done before. This will be the most intimate story we have ever told, delivered in the form of a scrapbook reminiscing on a lifetime – from 2007-2047 – a time-capsule from the future, a staggering vision, a warning to future generations, and most importantly, a must-have manual for how to navigate the bewildering times ahead.
