How Swedes and Norwegians Broke the Power of the ‘1 Percent’

How Swedes and Norwegians Broke the Power of the ‘1 Percent’ | Collaborative Culture Emerging | Scoop.it

While many of us are working to ensure that the Occupy movement will have a lasting impact, it’s worthwhile to consider other countries where masses of people succeeded in nonviolently bringing about a high degree of democracy and economic justice. Sweden and Norway, for example, both experienced a major power shift in the 1930s after prolonged nonviolent struggle. They “fired” the top 1 percent of people who set the direction for society and created the basis for something different.

The Next Marx: We Stand at the Verge of a New Financial Era

The Next Marx: We Stand at the Verge of a New Financial Era | Collaborative Culture Emerging | Scoop.it

This Marx will produce not a manifesto for the middle class. Rather, the new synthesis will fuse economics and environmentalism in a way that fundamentally reorients both disciplines. Marx pioneered political economy; Marx 2.0 will pioneer planetary economy. It’s not just about greening capitalism, as if enough solar cells and Prii will save the world. Our current economic system has reached its planetary limit.

IDEO's Steve Bishop on the Future of Sustainable Design Thinking

IDEO's Steve Bishop on the Future of Sustainable Design Thinking | Collaborative Culture Emerging | Scoop.it

The global lead of environmental impact at the design and business innovation firm has an optimistic vision for where his field is headed...'But our common approach to problem-solving brings us together -- that's design thinking. It's different from analytical thinking, where you break ideas down into discrete components, solve them individually, and bring it all back together for a solution.'

Abandon the Concept of "Illegal" Alien

Abandon the Concept of "Illegal" Alien | Collaborative Culture Emerging | Scoop.it

I guess the real question is: Once we assume that such a category of people as "illegal aliens" is a legal and moral possibility, where do we draw the line in doing something about it?

An alternative which would not require us to draw any such line would be to abandon the whole concept of an illegal alien and regard every human being on the planet as a member of the human race and a citizen of the world. Inside the United States no matter what state we were born in, we automatically acquire state citizenship merely by moving there.

The Scale of the Challenge is Shocking Us into Action

The Scale of the Challenge is Shocking Us into Action | Collaborative Culture Emerging | Scoop.it

One final thought, sparked by all that coverage of Meryl Streep's role in the soon-to-be-released Thatcher biopic, The Iron Lady. In the 1980s, we simply shouted "Maggie out", as if that was going to be enough; now, almost every activist I meet well knows that their priority is not to add to the thin noise of Westminster politics, but to highlight failures that are truly systemic.
