♦ Description : “The development of mass culture has led to the erosion of autonomous forms of popular culture and the dissolution of social ties in favor of an artificial world of isolated individuals, the foundation of the consumer society. Capitalism can not therefore be reduced to a system of economic exploitation, it represents a “total social fact”. It is all about the internalization of an imaginary and the development of a culture of permanent entertainment. This standardization of behaviors and aspirations is presented as the liberation of all constraints (social, spatial, temporal, etc.). Overwhelmed and triumphant, mass culture (American series, new technologies, football, video games, etc.) finds defenders even among so-called intellectuals. It is therefore urgent and necessary to carry out an uncompromising criticism of the capitalist way of life and to demonstrate how our civilization of leisure participates in the domestication of peoples.”
“The Libertarian and Social Offensive (OLS) is a French collective created by activists who left the network No Pasaran in April 2003. It was born from a desire to participate in the construction of a real offensive that puts an end to capitalism to patriarchy, which contributes to the development of future futures without any relation of domination or exploitation.
The group publishes a quarterly magazine, Offensive, mainly organized around a thematic file and which has more than 800 subscribers. In addition, the group hosts a radio program on Radio libertaire in Paris and Radio Grenouille in Marseille. Today the OLS has six groups (Brussels, Marseille, Paris, Grenoble, Avignon, Toulouse).”
