Descripción del producto
"The most provocative book I've read this year is The End of Protest by Micah White. . . . [H]e writes with brutal frankness about this, and, more generally, about how political protest as we know it--marches, speeches, slogans, 'clicktivism'--has been completely ineffective for decades, and is growing even less so with every passing year. White does raise the interesting notion, though, of a new form of protest; one with an actually meaningful 'theory of change'; an inchoate spectre that could haunt, chill, and even overthrow Establishment capitalism as we know it." --TechCrunch
Descripción del producto
Is protest broken? Micah White, co-creator of Occupy Wall Street, thinks so. Disruptive tactics have failed to halt the rise of Donald Trump. Movements ranging from Black Lives Matter to environmentalism are leaving activists frustrated. Meanwhile, recent years have witnessed the largest protests in human history. Yet these mass mobilizations no longer change society. Now activism is at a crossroads: innovation or irrelevance.
In The End of Protest Micah White heralds the future of activism. Drawing on his unique experience with Occupy Wall Street, a contagious protest that spread to eighty-two countries, White articulates a unified theory of revolution and eight principles of tactical innovation that are destined to catalyze the next generation of social movements.
Despite global challenges—catastrophic climate change, economic collapse and the decline of democracy—White finds reason for optimism: the end of protest inaugurates a new era of social change. On the horizon are increasingly sophisticated movements that will emerge in a bid to challenge elections, govern cities and reorient the way we live. Activists will reshape society by forming a global political party capable of winning elections worldwide.
In this provocative playbook, White offers three bold, revolutionary scenarios for harnessing the creativity of people from across the political spectrum. He also shows how social movements are created and how they spread, how materialism limits contemporary activism, and why we must re-conceive protest in timelines of centuries, not days.
Rigorous, original and compelling, The End of Protest is an exhilarating vision of an all-encompassing revolution of revolution.

If you're looking for a cookbook to revolution, this is not the book for you. But, if you want to plumb the depth and breath of the causes and theory behind revolutionary change, or be forced to think creatively about how to disrupt and change our system all in order to produce a world with the capacity for a positive answer to the global challenges vexing us, then you'll find much here to ponder.
On a final note, it is worth saying that beyond its intellectual rigor and value, this book is written with a tremendous amount of love and humility. It is a dangerous line to walk between revolutionary vigor/vitality and sounding voyeuristic when one refers to revolutions as "beautiful," for instance. White not only walks this line, but implicitly draws it by demonstrating through his words and deeds - a collection of incredible hard work and self-sacrifice in the name of justice - that he is outside of himself and for others; that he is from our world and for our world, but he is not of it. I feel blessed to be an "early adopter" of White's ideas and to have the opportunity to spread the love and pay it forward as he has done for me and will undoubtedly do for millions, if not billions of people worldwide.
