Event

 
Jammers,

Please join us in a crazy, yet profound, journey into a radical new 
future.

Imagine this... you wake up tomorrow morning and find out that the Dow 
Jones has just plunged 2,000 points. Trading has been halted. Over the 
next few weeks:

	* Major stock markets around the world crash
	* Banks close
	* Supermarket shelves are half-empty
	* Power is intermittent, gasoline hard to find, email sporadic

Violent gangs and bandits roam the streets. People move to the country 
- if they can. Governments try to maintain order, yet it appears that 
the old globalized order is gone, if not forever, then for a long, long 
time.

Six months later, you hear that Adbusters is working on a post-crash 
issue. We are sending out word that we can see a positive trend in what 
happened: innovative survival strategies are emerging, along with 
thriving local economic systems; borders are being redrawn on 
bioregional lines. We have a chance to create the new world that we've 
always dreamed about.

Can you take a mental trip into this strange future? Can you imagine 
what life would be like? Where did you end up? How did you survive? 
What are you doing now? Send us a lament, a vision, a poem, something 
mystical. What are the best post-crash jokes going around? What have 
you seen or heard in your neighborhood?

Or send us a how-to tip. How do you cook, clean your teeth, keep your 
computer running? How do you kill a chicken?

No more than 250 words please: be creative and be authentic. The next 
issue will be a compilation of the best stories sent in, and each 
published contribution will receive three brand new Adbusters 2005 
calendars.
