Ferananda's curator insight, March 25, 5:30 PM

Reading this pdf was very inspiring to bring words into the new stories that will allow us to transform one of the major systems that will affect all the rest: our economy. 

 

David Korten says:

 

Any discussion of a New Economy properly begins
with the obvious truth: Without nature, there are no
people. The Living Universe and Earth Community
provide the underlying frame for the New Story for a
New Economy.

 

He carefully goes through morals and science and the main stories and narratives that have influenced the design of our social systems. He then tells the story of 'the Living Universe' and the interconnectedness, inter-relatedness of all which integrates the one and the many, agency and communion, sovereignty and accountability.  Beautiful and essential work.

The Transition to Free Libre and Open Source Soci(alism)ity | via Michel Bauwens

The Transition to Free Libre and Open Source Soci(alism)ity | via Michel Bauwens | Next Economy | Scoop.it

The period of transition between our current capitalist economic and social system and a socialist economy is a very controversial subject among socialists. Maintaining an active dialogue and critique of this period is absolutely critical to our strategic and tactical understanding of how to achieve a socialist society. Nothing springs from the naked void fully formed1. We need to examine the best avenues open to us for changing our current social direction into a society we would like to bring into existence.

 

The Juncture

Capitalism is like a hot ember placed on a flammable object – the fire consumes the body in patches and gulps, some areas taking longer to catch, some areas exploding with flame and some areas quickly charred and brought to heel. Yet capitalism smouldered for a long period before catching fire. An economic, social and political regime can appear to remain stagnant while an apparent marginal economic activity moves towards dominance and finally erupts. Capitalism, which was once a marginal approach to economic activity, exploded onto the scene of history with dynamic force; a force which in a few centuries almost completely eliminated feudalism. A theory of social change will have to take into account the conditions which allow new social systems to ignite. It must also recognise that societies can exist in an admixture of various different economic systems. For this reason studying the entrance of capitalism onto the political scene is deeply important. Its genesis can give us clues to its demise.
