"The rioters were hypnotized by antifa temptresses who hid psychoactive drugs in their vaginas," said Lindell [CEO of MyPillow]. "If you look at the video, many of the rioters had crazed looks in their eyes."

Solidarity Economy in the world

An English-speaking discussion group to promote and exchange Solidarity economy experiences and practices in different language and cultural contexts. If you have a critical mass of people sharing the same language, it could be a good idea to include those who don't speak English, while this group will work rather as an intercultural hub where people from different cultures come to mingle.

good review article on

"Community archives and archiving projects represent unprecedentedly democratic venues for information work centering on essential documentary concepts such as custody, collection development and appraisal, processing, arrangement and description, organization, representation and naming, collaboration, resource generation and allocation, activism and social justice, preservation, reuse, and sustainability."

DisCO aims to prototype new and radical forms of ownership, governance & value accounting to counteract economic inequality by combining concepts from cooperativism, the commons, P2P & feminist economics.

First take: "The DisCO Elements" is how do you say, de-groovy? de-gorgeous?

Great graphics, playful & efficient text, links to music & more. Provides a great re-cap of the DisCO model & adds key elements, especially the "Governance and Economic model" (mostly about how to compensate livelihood, love, & care work).

Disappointing to see the value flows software platform still described as "coming soon." Leave "em wanting more.

Nice shoutout to Social.Coop.

Kudos to @Stacco @disco_coop et al.

Only 2 days left! Part one of the DisCO trilogy – the DisCO Manifesto – answers the question why, and the DisCO Elements take it a step further to address the how. It is a call to reexamine the world around you, take action and explore templates for building an economy based on equality, inclusive technology, mutual support and care.

"DisCOs, and the networked interlinkages between them, are meant to facilitate the creation of an entire postcapitalist counter-economy within the interstices of the existing capitalist economy." by Kevin Carson

this is good, the Reith Lectures on the beeb. 'From moral to market sentiments': "How does the way we assess value both shape our values and constrain our choices? Dr Mark Carney charts how we have come to esteem financial value over human value."
(note that Mazzucato is cited and is in the audience asking a question)
