Or do you want something better? I really found this book rather muddled It certainly needed much better editing Although Mason talks about Marxism and class politics he really doesn't give any clear view on how change is to be achieved There are some interesting elements to the book and clearly Mason is well read but his prioritisation of issues is bizarre and reflective of the priorities of the mainstream media Having said that his low priority for climate change would not reflect the priorities of The Guardian

doc ☆ Clear Bright Future ☆ Paul Mason

Paul Mason calls for a radical impassioned defence of the human being our universal rights and freedoms and our power to change the world around us Ranging from economics to Big Data from neuroscience to the culture wars he draws from his on the ground reporting from mass protests in Istanbul to riots in Washington as well as his own childhood in an English mining comm 2 12 I wanted to give stars to this book After all I painfully share its urgency I worry for the same subjects it deals with and I too wished we had a clear and bright answer to counter the world we live in today At the same time its informative value kept me reading it despite the freuent need to leave for external sources either because of a too noticeable bias or for a too superficial approach That being said Mason’s answer is an outdated and uncritical defense of an anthropocentric or Eurocentric idea of humanism that he drains from the recently discovered early writings of Marx with ideas that he himself dropped on his later thoughts and worksHe does this defense by annoyingly and too simplistically rejecting all postmodern and post humanist thought and not solely ‘anti’ as the black and white world he wants to portray in what becomes almost a childish and blind struggleSo decent historical information and good context for the current happenings But no solid sight of how to get to that clear and bright future

Clear Bright FutureA passionate defence of humanity and a work of radical optimism from the international bestselling author of Postcapitalism How do we preserve what makes us human in an age of uncertainty? Are we now just consumers shaped by market forces? A seuence of DNA? A collection of base instincts? Or will we soon be supplanted by algorithms and AI anyway?In Clear Bright Future I reject Mason's philosophy He also throws out some seriously suspect offhanded comments about history the first that comes to mind saying that is his Rome fell because tribal invasions and slavery is bad economics Which is just it's not even wrong it's received wisdom a myth a politically motivated lie whatever you want to call it he's parroting not thinking there To give a general idea why I didn't like this book but you might whoever you areI hate Aristotlethe institution obviously I never met the actual person the name goes toYou can redefine Humanism if you want but what it was and is is racist as shit at best Liberalism is Fascisms' that's plural father Justshut the hell up about Russia and don't even start on China He who lives in a glass house should not cast stones Liberal Democracy is not and has never been Democratic It's literally supposed to prevent that Rationality is both overrated and incoherent as an ideology America is a Fascist state it was before there was a word for it and it still is by literally any definition you care to name which isn't We can't be FascistsYou can call it an Apartheid or Corporatist state or a Neo Colonial Empire even just Crony Capitalism as if there's such a thing as Capitalism that ain't if that makes you feel better they're all the same thing White Supremacist colonial incarceral uneual undemocratic corporatist rapacious patriarchal genocidal hyper martial hateful of the working class and some mix of death suads and secret police I do agree with what feels like the most important sentence in the book tho paraphrasing liberally 'Artificial GeneralSuper Intelligence under Capitalism will be very very fucking bad
