Association for the

Design of History

The left is in a desperate situation.

In the wake of the total victory of neoliberalism under Margaret Thatcher and Ronald Reagan in the early 80’s, any hope for a better future has been annihilated. There is no alternative.

Or so they say. Our task is to take back the initiative. We must build new utopian dreams, new strategies, new lines of flight. We need to win.

A Platform for Transformation

The Association for the Design of History is a think tank, a media factory, and a centre for the conscious coordination of class struggle. Our organisation consists of many different talented people, united in their will to understand and change the world for the better.

Reason

Technology and social complexity are the prerequisites of liberation. This modernist creed is the basis of our politics.

Planning

Planning is applied rationality. If we want to build The New, we have to think strategically and methodically.

Progress

Even small victories can create a strong momentum, carrying us towards the future. We must go on the offensive.
