Free download Inventing the Future 105 Ite Inventing the Future is a bold new manifesto for life after capitalism Against the confused understanding of our high tech world by both the right and the left this book claims that the emancipatory and future oriented possibilities of our. When 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 chutzpah to see it as but a first step on the road to redefining human civilisation Something which as they observe has been done plenty of times before often from even worse starting points than ours They re also keenly aware of the range of interests sometimes overlooked by the traditional left and talk usefully about ways of building common cause with intersecting but historically non identical struggles from environmentalism to feminism and beyondIt s a very smart book and a visionary one too but I m not sure it ll ever be a bestseller They re very good about avoiding jargon for jargon s sake and in its ambitious field it s definitely an easier read than eg Vaneigem but it s still unavoidably technical I think the authors would be the first to agree that what would be brilliant now is for some new Wilde to read this and sublime it into a new Soul of Man under Socialism This is a first manifesto a pointer in the right direction a theoretical grounding Whilst knowing that little here is likely to appear in undiluted form any time soon I certainly hope that a slow filtering through might begin not least if people in the Corbyn and Sanders teams get hold of copiesI got mine from Netgalley this may have changed now but it was up with no gatekeeping so that anyone who joined the site could download a copy Lots of publishers do that as a standard promotional tactic of course but Verso being Verso I can t help wondering if in this particular case there was also an element of deliberate evangelism Though for me one of the book s flaws is the way they skip over feudalism in suggesting a fairly seamless transition from individual subsistence agriculture to urban labour Yes in the developing world now many people are being driven off the land and into the slums but in mediaeval Europe the cities were beacons of freedom for the rural poor a lure despite shocking death rates and the like Indeed for others of the global poor that s still the case today

Free download Inventing the Future 105 Society can be reclaimed Instead of running from a complex future Nick Srnicek and Alex Williams demand a postcapitaiist economy capable of advancing standards liberating humanity from work and developing technologies that expand our freedoms. In order to regain our ground as Leftists we must recognize the limitation of folk politics Folk politics politics of immediacy fetishizes activism for activism s sake without regards for long terms strategy and goals and is insufficient to challenge neoliberal capitalism s global hegemony Hegemony necessarily reuires long term strategic planning across the board traversing not only institutions both inside and outside the state but also infrastructure as well With the aim of constructing a new counter hegemony to neoliberal consensus Nick and Alex calls for the creation of a broad based popular coaliationconstituency to wage a POLITICAL struggle for Universal Basic Income reduced working days repurposing existing and emergent technologies and means of production for non capitalist ends and full automation full employmentFor instance the UBI scheme that the authors have in mind is nonreformist because it will not be a substitute for welfare but function as an additional safety netIn their view these non reformist reformist proposals will land us suarely in a post work future albeit not yet a non capitalist future as there would still be commodity productionexchange and the profit motive At this point it s only a fair uestion to ask if these proposals taken as a whole isn t just one massive reformist package dressed up in the language of lukewarm class struggle What about the abolition of value For their part the authors also reject the viability of traditional class struggle and of the traditional revolutionary proletariat considering the decaying boundary between work and precarityNonetheless this book is an essential read for anyone interested in how projected trends in technology will transform work and wageslavery for better or worseAn excellent review of the book can be found herehttpwwwleftcomorgenarticles20
