Battles over Autonomy: The Commons Alternative

1 post / 0 new

"The Commons is a way of reproducing society that opposes the market logic, puts in question private property, profit and competition and points to a future form of society beyond capitalism.

Instead of focusing on growth chances and profit possibilities, the Commons perspective starts from human needs and existing natural resources and asks how these needs can be best satisfied with these resources and how as many participants as possible can join in decisions...

The Commons is not the solution but the change of perspectives that makes possible new solutions."
