The Last Night: anti-work, atheism, adventure - Federico Campagna

Our secular society seems to have finally found its new God: Work. As technological progress makes human labour superfluous, and over-production destroys both the economy and the planet, Work remains stronger than ever as a mantra of universal submission. Federico Campagna will discuss the rise to power of the new Work religion, and will present the case for ‘radical atheism’. Drawing from a vast array of sources, spanning from the Hellenistic ultra-hedonist Cyrainc philosophers to the Jesuit author Baltasar Gracian to the anarchist philosopher Max Stirner, this lecture will explore ethical alternatives to the contemporary cult of voluntary servitude.
Federico Campagna is a writer based in London. His main fields of research are ethics and anarchism. His latest book is 'The Last Night: anti-work, atheism, adventure' (Zero Books, 2013).

    There is a discussion forum on this site, why does no-one use it?

    I posted when I joined & as I will miss this meeting - I have posted my reply on the discussion forum- but with little expectation that a discussion will ensue.

    The premise assumed above is seriously flawed from an atheist POV and regrettably shows a lack of intellectual coherence that illustrates IMO the desperate need for atheism to be widely discussed by strong, positive anti-theist atheists and not non-believing humanitarianism of British Humanistm.

      There is a discussion forum on your own site Sue M, so why don't you try to develop that? Or is it simply a case that your own forum has failed, so you stomp around other sites trying to ruin them also..? A rhetorical question Sue M,,, your history speaks for itself.

      I facilitated the London Atheist Meetup Group for 5 very successful years of discussion before it was trashed by trolls like you. Others still find it a useful resource, but I am not in the business of organising atheists social lives for them, and arguing with those who take every opportunity to denigrate outspoken anti-theists.

    interesting and challenging viewpoints but were they too simplistic?
