Our aim is to industrialise Earth to the advantage of 9,500,000,000 people by 2050, and in production revolutionise our lives. (1)
Things will endure less than us. Every generation must build its own city. (2)
Environmentalism is the ideology of capitalism in retreat from production. (3)
audacity is a campaigning company concerned with the design and production of the man-made environment, advocating development free from the burden of "sustainababble" and "communitwaddle". We believe in citizens, not cities, but that raises important questions:
Unless we bring politics back down to earth from heaven our critical, social and intellectual lives will be diminished. (4)
audacity argues for accelerating and advancing development to support the benefits of British and international population growth, promotes high levels of immigration, and applauds greater social aspiration. We believe in expanding political freedoms to build a material world fit for humanity:
Sustainability... another way of deciding who is in charge. (5)
audacity organises authoritative international research, engaging seminars, large conferences, a provocative website and a dynamic school of writers, public speakers and photographers. Read us, listen to us, argue with us, write for us and sponsor us with cash!
We had Labour against socialism. Now we have a Conservative government shy about capitalism. (6)
