Adbusters Media Foundation is a Canadian non-profit organization founded in 1989 by Kalle Lasn and Bill Schmalz in Vancouver. Adbusters describes itself as "a global network of artists, activists, writers, pranksters, students, educators and entrepreneurs who want to advance the new movement of information age social activists."
Openly anti-capitalist, he publishes Adbusters, a committed, ad-free magazine supported solely by readers.
"We are an international collective of activists, artists, writers, designers, musicians, philosophers, poets, punks and wild hearts.
Join us to defeat Big Tech. Clean up the toxic areas of our mental environment. Reverse the upward flow of wealth. Punish any company that betrays public trust. Holding corrupt politicians accountable. It awakens a reckless and complacent culture. Fight the psychological conquest of the all-seeing advertising surveillance industry. Unfollow and retweet. . . to start thinking, speaking and acting for ourselves"
Is there still any hope for humanity?
Can we think the unthinkable, do the impossible: put together our m * rda, achieve independence from fossil fuels, establish a Digital Bill of Rights, launch Democracy 2.0?
Or are we doomed?
In this urgent edition of Adbusters, we address the question of how great nations, organizations, movements, ideas and historical eras live and thrive, but also how they run out and die.
Whether it's a triumphant fanfare or a swan song for our species, now is the time to let go of all your pretensions and join us.
