Significations & Social Imaginary in the 21st Century
It is the best of times, it is the worst of times. These are, revolutionary times...
Worsening social and material conditions, economic decay, mass uprisings across Mideast, North African, and European countries, the undeniable power of new technologies such as WikiLeaks, Facebook, Twitter, and other online and mobile media (for better or worse), the threat of ecological disaster, and the social transformations unfolding in Latin America -- all combine to make this century dramatically different from the last. These are today's activated revolutionary forces that will shape our future -- and be shaped by us -- whether we are conscious of it or not. The timeless goal of a society organized around autonomy, classlessness, self-management, mutual-aid, solidarity, and diversity is yet to be realized once and for all.
Our task is to imagine those structures and relations that can deliver these desired outcomes, drawing from past and present examples, and offer a new world view outlining what is possible -- to figure out how to self-consciously move from today's world into the instauration (or original creation) of an autonomous project for a participatory society that transforms all spheres of life.
