A Paradigm Lost
Engelsk text, illustrerad
Political poetry intertwined with powerful activist art.
We have adapted to greed, consumerism, hate, injustice, war, destruction and sociopathy. Adaptation has kept us alive for millennia –and now it is killing us. We need a shift, a 99% lift – we need to lose the view that things are inherently awful and we can’t do anything about it.
We need to stop manufacturing consent and start manufacturing dissent – by the boat load, ship it out like Amazon knick knacks – from sea to shining sea and back again. We need hope – without optimism. We need to feel inspired. Art can, poetry can. Through our emotions, building the notions that we can – can Do something
