Kalle Lasn is the driving intellectual force behind the anti-corporate Adbusters Media Foundation.
In his writings, Lasn rails against the modern world and the progress that has made everyone’s life better. “The aggregate level of American life
fulfillment peaked in 1957, and with a couple of brief exceptions, it’s been downhill from there,” he writes in his book Culture Jam: How to
Reverse America's Suicidal Consumer Binge -- and Why We Must. Lasn calls the car “arguably the most destructive product we humans have ever
Lasn’s utopia is far from that of most Americans. He recommends “Not just a carbon tax, but a global across-the-board pricing system.” An
example of life in this brave new world? “Your private automobile will cost you, by some estimates, around $100,000. And a tankful of gas, $250.”
The Adbusters Media Foundation (AMF) is a not-for-profit, anti-consumerist organization founded in 1989 by author/activist Kalle Lasn and wilderness
cinematographer Bill Schmalz in Vancouver, British Columbia. The Foundation describes itself as "a global network of artists, activists, writers,
pranksters, students, educators and entrepreneurs who want to advance the new social activist movement of the information age.
According to journalist Aaron Klein, the September 17 New York City protests—which ultimately drew about 1,000 participants—apparently represented
“the culmination” of a campaign by Wade Rathke, founder of ACORN and president of an SEIU local in New Orleans, who in March 2011 had issued a
call for “days of rage in ten cities around JP Morgan Chase.” Rathke's efforts were supported by Stephen Lerner, an SEIU board member and
radical-left organizer who candidly aims to “destabilize the folks that are in power and start to rebuild a movement”; “bring down the stock
market”; “bring down [the] bonuses” of executives in the financial sector; and “interfere with their ability to ... be rich.”
Between 2001 and 2011, AMF received $176,500 in grants from the Glaser Progress Foundation, and $309,773 from the Tides Foundation.
