"Academy of Democratic Modernity" founded - new internet presence online
“Based on the realization of our analysis of the world political situation and the crisis of the democratic forces, we think that it is time to deepen the discussions about ways out of the crisis and the construction of Democratic Modernity.”
On March 18, 2022, the "Academy of Democratic Modernity" (ADM) announced their foundation and the establishment of a new internet platform.
The Academy sees its central task in building Democratic Modernity, in educational work to create a new understanding of democratic politics, social enlightenment and a new political-moral consciousness.
“At the same time, we consider the creation of networks and connections between democratic forces as a fundamental prerequisite for building Democratic Modernity. Through the creation of forums and platforms, we want to contribute to the strengthening of the international exchange of experiences and connect existing struggles,” said the statement by the Academy of Democratic Modernity, which further includes the following:
“Based on the realization of our analysis of the world political situation and the crisis of the democratic forces, we think that it is time to deepen the discussions about ways out of the crisis and the construction of Democratic Modernity. Because while the Capitalist Modernity is a highly organized and global system, the alternative remains until today unorganized, fragmented and without a strategic and unifying proposal of common organization.
The areas of work of the Academy are, among others, the organization of social educational work, the connection of democratic forces, and the expansion of democratic politics as a contribution to the construction of Democratic World Confederalism.”
The bilingual homepage (English and German), which is still under construction, contains contributions around topics such as current political situation analyses, radical democracy, ecology, women's liberation, history and assessments of contemporary social movements. ADM's stated goal is to make the homepage available in Spanish within a month. In addition to the official website and email address ([email protected]), interested parties can also contact ADM directly on Twitter.
