This anthology contains the word visions and ideas brought forth on November 15, 2014, when over 40 poets, speakers, and musicians gathered in collaboration and celebration on the theme Overthrowing Capitalism, organized by the Revolutionary Poets Brigade in conjunction with the World Poetry Movement. at the Emerald Tablet Gallery in San Francisco.
We hope you will agree with us that this anthology is filled with sophisticated and inspiring insights, ideas, exposés, and analyses from poets who are serious about the work ahead. Words that unmask capitalism and raise our consciousness to hopefully lead the world into a more co-operative society. What is capitalism? Might it be reformed into a constructive force, or can we move beyond it only by overthrowing it? What does overthrowing capitalism look like? How do we know when it's overthrown? What might a post-capitalist world look like? This century is issuing in an era of unprecedented planetary crises, and we have only a short time to transform these many looming disasters into a powerful movement for a constructive revolutionary future.
We call on all poets and all people to join us in making a new beginning, to reach deep into your center and bring forth the energies that can lead humanity and the natural world into a bright future, and we call on you all to become visionaries.
