‘A compelling vision, an urgent necessity, and not beyond reach’ Noam ChomskyThe past is forgotten, and the future is without hope. Dystopia has become a reality. This is the new normal in our apocalyptic politics – but if we accept it, our helplessness is guaranteed.

To bring about real change, argues activist and political philosopher Srecko Horvat, we must first transform our mindset. Ranging through time and space, from the partisan liberation movements of Nazi-occupied Yugoslavia to the contemporary culture, refugee camps and political frontlines of 21st century Europe, Horvat shows that the problems we face today are of an unprecedented nature. To solve them, he argues in this passionate call for a new radical internationalism, we must move beyond existing ways of thinking: beyond borders, national identities and the redundant narratives of the past.

Only in this way can we create new models for living and, together, shape a more open and optimistic future.
