So you take it for granted that economists know what they’re doing . . . that toxic financial instruments like derivatives and credit default swaps are business as usual . . . that flash trading is an efficient way to run stock exchanges . . . that money can move freely across borders but people can’t . . . that advertising is a harmless distraction . . . that secrecy is a normal part of democracy . . . that arms trading cannot be stopped . . . that no matter how heinous a crime a corporation commits, no matter how blatantly they breach the public trust, we cannot revoke its right to exist.
Are these hidden coordinates of our fucked-up global system something you ceased to question long ago?
Then you need a seismic shakeup to jolt you into a new conceptual orbit!
Adbusters’ Field Guide To A New World Order presents a new strategic vision for the political left . . . A grand narrative, a once-in-a-millennium mind shift, a radical set of big ideas — Metamemes — so systemic, so profoundly transformative, that a sane sustainable future is unthinkable without them:
- Field Guide I – Metameme Warfare introduces you to the Metameme as a revolutionary tool.
- Field Guide II – Break the Trance presents six steps for cleaning up the toxic clutter in your mental environment.
- Field Guide III – Reverse Money Flows shows you how to stop living your life to the drumbeat of capital and how, working together, we can bring Big Finance to its knees.
- Field Guide IV – Détournement teaches you the radical tricks of cultural combat — How to beat the alt-right at its own game.
- Field Guide V – The Power of Ritual reveals how, working as members of an activist network — abillionpeople.org — we can harness the collective power of global ritual to change culture, society, politics, and history.
Time to catapult the left back into action.
