Adbusters Magazine January-February 2010 Back Issue

English 5 Reviews   •  English   •   General Interest (News & Current Affairs)
A Silver Bullet of Big Ideas
Our species is facing unprecedented challenges and people often think we need radically new ideas to match the bizarre realities and uncertainties of our time. But has our quest for “new ideas” become indistinguishable from our quest for new cars, new clothes and new entertainment?

Confucius
It is finally time for the West to adopt some tenets of Confucianism: community, calm, reverence and egalitarianism, and time for the world to do away with the hackneyed binaries of East/West, good/evil, right/wrong and socialism/capitalism.

The Glorious Bastards of 2009
Find out who we’re celebrating as the most wildly inspirational activists of the year.

Ramadan Xmas
Westerners have a long tradition of adopting ways to temper excess from other cultures: Yoga brings us calm and Tao brings us balance. Now it’s time to look to Islam for a bit of restraint and introduce some elements of Ramadan into the consumer spectacle of Christmas.

New Possibilities for Australia
On the surface Australia seems to be a utopia of opportunity, tolerance and good intentions, but the country’s soft public image often conceals a heart of darkness. As the mood darkens, however, Australian youth are showing that living on the brink has made them both adaptable and resilient.

Adbusters Media Foundation is a global network of culture jammers and
creators who are working to change the way information flows, the way
corporations wield power and the way meaning is produced in our
society.

Ad-free since 1989, its flagship publication, Adbusters magazine, is
available worldwide and has been instrumental in launching numerous
global campaigns including Buy Nothing Day, Digital Detox Week,
Kickitover.org and, most recently, Occupy Wall Street.

Adbusters Media Foundation es una red global de saboteadores
culturales y creadores que están trabajando para cambiar la forma en
que fluye la información, la forma en que las corporaciones ejercen el
poder y la forma en que se produce significado en nuestra sociedad.

Libre de anuncios desde 1989, su buque insignia, la revista Adbusters,
está disponible en todo el mundo y ha sido clave para lanzar numerosas
campañas globales como el Día Sin Compras, la Semana de
Desintoxicación Digital, Kickitover.org y, más recientemente, Occupy
Wall Street.

Unbridled by corporate sponsorship and completely reader funded, Adbusters has dared to go where few publications have gone before: spoofing megacorps, challenging the governing economic paradigm, publishing provocateurs and philosophical heretics, advocating for mental environmentalism and demanding the total reboot of the Western imagination. Their most recent project is a 400 page economics textbook – Meme Wars: The Creative Destruction of Neoclassical Economics – available everywhere November 2012.
