Red Wedge #5: "Bad Dreams"

Modern life for millions is a nightmare. Climate change is threatening our very notion of a stable and natural reality. The far right is ascendant in a growing number of countries. Neoliberalism, in all its exposed cruelty and indifference, continues to stride along on the back of its most effective mantra: “There Is No Alternative.” Should we even bother with dreams of optimism, of anything better? We don’t have a choice. We can’t afford to give up the dream, but we will also be woefully unprepared if we don’t face and examine the nightmare, even acknowledge the ways in which the threat of oblivious spurs us forth to create something better. As the song says, “from the ashes of the old…” Red Wedge’s fifth issue is devoted to unpacking these questions.
