I was very sad to hear last week of the death of Teddy Goldsmith, one of this country’s pioneering greens, and a man I knew personally and worked with for a time. Teddy was a curious paradox of a man. Very rich, very establishment, yet also fiercely anti-capitalist, anti-imperialist and anti-modern.
Well, I’ve been thinking about it for what seems like years, working on it for many months and hinting at it on this blog for God knows how long. Now, finally, it’s just about mature enough to be exposed to the world.
Today, myself and my co-conspirator Dougald Hine are announcing an attempt to coax into being a new literary and artistic movement for an age of massive global change. We are calling it the Dark Mountain Project.
