Reading about the coop movement during the great depression is really funny, because essentially people went "hey, you still have food, we still have labor, can we just do stuff anyway? even though there's no money?"

And then they were like "oh hey looks like the economy was fake all along"

Hi everyone! @mattcropp told me about I am part of Polis — We are working on building tools and social methods to create high participatory organizations that go after innovative and large positive impact projects using a cooperative model. I am here to learn and share about the legal forms and ways to fund these projects and share anything else that we are learning. Looking forward to participate in the discussions! is a cooperatively-run corner of the Fediverse. The instance is democratically governed by its members, who generally share an interest in the co-op model, but topics of discussion range widely.
