Book TitlePrimitive Times

Author: Shane Moran



Globalist grifters or saviours of humanity? Primitive Times aims to identify some of the roots of contemporary globalisation in the enlightenment legacy of human rights, colonialism, and imperialism. Fear of global enslavement under the boot of corporate masters, and pleas for a rational world order, are part of a political and literary tradition that can illuminate the resurgence of earlier forms of domination. We are told that to shape the future we have to imagine the future. Primitive Times maps the coordinates of this imagination.
