"Fork the Economy" by @Rushkoff
"I've given up on fixing the economy. The economy is not broken. It's simply unjust. There's a difference.
We have to stop looking at our economy as a broken system, but one that is working absolutely true to its original design. It's time to be progressive -- and this means initiating systemic changes."
Here is an interesting thought to post to a mastodon instance. From Dmytri Kleiner via P2P Foundation:
"Going back to an early Internet architecture of cooperative, decentralized servers, as projects such as Diaspora, GNU Social, and others are attempting to do, will not work. This is precisely the sort of architecture that anti-disintermediation was designed to defeat. Decentralized systems need to be designed to be counter-anti-disintermediationist."
I just signed up for this free #MOOC on #coops, run by Univeristy of #edinburgh, starts 8th Jan: https://www.edx.org/course/economic-democracy-cooperative-edinburghx-coopsx-0
"Economic Democracy: The Cooperative Alternative
Could a cooperative market economy, in which firms are owned and controlled by their workers, be a viable and efficient alternative to capitalism?"
Greetings to the fediverse. Thanks for all the follows and likes so far! And I've barely stepped off the bus.
