1 - wheat pasting campaign
2 - handing out fliers
I have always wanted to do these two, preferably in coordination with an event. Big fliers that say NIHILISM and then tell people to go somewhere to clean up trash, plant trees, or kill the weak would be a total win.
What's Chicago like these days? What kind of activities (besides drive-by eugenics) would benefit it?
I like your idea concerning the fliers in coordination with an event. A film festival is comin up this month and next i think, but that may be too small.
Chicago basically sucks. Its dirty, Its overpopulated. But on the upside there are a lot of interesting museums and the like, but it doesnt make up for the overwhelming city atmosphere. It is overgrown with useless activities, a billion restaurants and stores to pick your personality at, a million surrogates to suckle on instead of actively engaging in life, ugly homeless people expecting your pity.
What would benefit this city is:
A - Cleaning up trash while simultaneously raising awareness about nature. Get people to think that whenever you litter or buy useless products full of waste you are destroying the earth
B - Since community events are not all that rare, i would say that there should be refuge and community for people who desire abstract thought. Most events are just watching something (that not ballet doesn't encourage abstract thought). Somehow encourage people to think more.
People here need what they need everywhere: values and goals instead of a billion restaurants of heart-destroying food (well some of it is quite good actually).
