Description - Living In A World That Can't Be Fixed: Re-Imagining Counterculture Today by Curtis White
So begins Curtis White's thrilling call for the revitalization of counterculture today.
The problem, White argues, is twofold- first, most of us think of counterculture as a phenomenon stuck in the 1960s, and, second, what passes as counterculture today...simply isn't. Nevertheless, a reimagined counterculture is our best hope to save the planet, bypass social antagonisms, and create the world we actually want to live in. Now.
White-"the most inspiringly wicked social critic of the moment" (Will Blythe, Elle)-shows how the products of our so-called resistance, from Ken Burns to Black Panther, rarely offer a meaningful challenge to power, and how our loyalty to the "American Lifestyle" is self-defeating and keeps us from making any real social change.
The result is an inspiring case for practicing civil disobedience as a way of life, and a clear vision for a better world-full of play, caring, and human connection.
