    PDF/EPUB Nick Srnicek Æ Inventing the Future Epub ´ Inventing the eBook Æ inventing download, future book, Inventing the mobile, Inventing the Future EpubThis book is particularly useful for its comprehensive history of neoliberalism and especially how it went from an ideology that at one time was very much on the fringe and understood as belonging only to the loony right to becoming central to our society and virtually ‘common sense’ The authors here say the left needs to similarly have a long term plan to change the paradigm our society takes for granted and therefore to change what is considered to be common sense Given the abject failures of neoliberal policies you might think this would be a relatively easy task – but that isn’t now common sense works The authors idea is to change the way we think about fundamental problems and to therefore reinvent the futurePart of the argument here is that too much of what has passed for left progressive action in the past has been grossly ineffectual The Occupy Movement the anti war movement prior to the Ira War – none of these came close to achieving their objectives

    PDF/EPUB Nick Srnicek Æ Inventing the Future Epub ´ Inventing the eBook Æ inventing download, future book, Inventing the mobile, Inventing the Future EpubWhen did 'modernisation' become a euphemism for life getting worse in the interests of the rich? Why do 'Conservatives' now advocate change while the left is too often reduced to mere resistance or a desire to turn the clock back? What happened to bold visions of a better future for everyone? This is a brave and necessary book which makes a powerful case for a serious rethink Disdaining the current trend for 'folk politics' though sympathetic to the urges behind it they sensibly note that The reality of complex globalised capitalism is that small interventions consisting of relatively non scalable actions are highly unlikely to ever be able to reorganise our socioeconomic system Examining the birth of neoliberalism once itself a counter hegemonic strategy and its long term redefinition of the possible Srnicek and Williams suggest a similar and opposite strategy is now needed from the left Even the first goal they suggest the end of work seems utopian at present but they have the chutz
