Poetry from the Future: Why a Global Liberation Movement Is Our Civilisation's Last Chance

Srecko Horvat (Author)
Available

Description

What is democracy? Have our democratic societies turned into a form of totalitarianism? If so, how do they get away with it? The past is forgotten, and the future is without hope. Dystopia has become a reality. Capitalism and historical revisionism are part of the fabric of this new world of normalized apocalyptic politics. Our passivity is guaranteed if we believe there is no future--this is a radical manifesto for hope in democracy, union and internationalism. Srecko Horvat, a leading European philosopher, calls for a radical internationalism in order to bring true democracy to Europe.
