"Love needs force to conquer the ruling powers and dismantle their corrupt institutions before it can create a new world of common wealth." -

Great to have love as our protagonist.

Negri & Hardt often rely on this "x has to happen before y can happen" framing. But haven't we seen that the creation of a new world of common wealth and the organization of force capable of dismantling the corrupt institutions are not stages but dimensions of love in action?

identifies "10 Roads of Solidarity Economy"
1. The Road of the Poor & the popular economy
2. The Road of Solidarity with the Poor (donations, services, npo)
3. The Road of Labor
4. The Road of Social Participation and Self-Management
5. The Road of Transformative Action & social change
6. The Road of Alternative Development
7. The Road of Ecology
8. The Road of Women and Families
9. The Road of First Peoples
10. The Road of the Spirit.
I think it's good to recognize multiple roads.

Cooperatives Europe is circulating a call for proposals (€26,000) for a "knowledge base" platform on co-op development. Any takers?

Following tonight's call there is a proposal in the Community Working Group dealing with the creation of formal operations team roles that will receive a (very, to start) modest stipend for the work. The vote will be open for 6 days, and, if it passes, will be followed by a call for candidates, so please weigh in!
