I just found out about this project, and it sounds very promising. I too don't buy the view of the future as a better version of the current world. However, I don't really understand what uncivilisation is saying beyond this. I've read through the brief manifestoes available on the websites and all that there seems to be is a negative message: "this is what our vision of the future should NOT be".
So what should it be? Uncivilisation claims to stand for hope for a new start. But how do we envision this working out? Are we talking apocalypses/near-extinction senarios where the few survivors emerging from their underground tunnels can restart a brave new world without the messy civilisations of the past? Are we talking about new political/economic systems of managing the world? Are we talking environmental disasters or horrific overpopulation? Are we talking about unprecedented levels of space exploration?
If we believe that apocalyptic senarios cannot be averted, then shouldn't we be proactive in setting up help and aid for the future generations that will need to cope with this? I guess one thing I'm confused about is why uncivilisation, which I think rightly sees a grim future for mankind, has decided to deal with this by initiating talks and festivals rather than, say, by initiating the creation of vast stockpiles of long-life food, clean water and medical supplies.
The background photo for this forum depicts rivers of blood and "last-days-of-the-dinosaurs" type imagery, yet no one seems to be panicked. I'm confused.
Please help me,
