Management, business, anarchism | ephemera

Management, business, anarchism | ephemera | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
Management, business, anarchism. Can these three terms, that come with so much baggage, be fruitfully brought together? This special issue brings together contributions that range from discussions of anarchist political economy and anarchism as a theory of organisation to the practices of anarchist alternatives and the radical imagination. Scholars from anarchist studies as well as critical management studies highlight the various ways the connections between the two fields can be articulated. Rather than offer the final word on the intersection between anarchism, business and management, this special issue tries to open a crack in existing academic orthodoxies on alternative organisation and create a space for critical reflection on the potential anarchism has to provide alternative ways of thinking and enacting organisation. The special issue includes five sections: ‘Anarchism as a theory of organisation’, ‘Key ideas in anarchism and CMS’, ‘The roots of anarchist organisation’, ‘Anarchist praxis’ and ‘The radical imagination’.

Crypto-Anarchists and Cryptoanarchists - Bitcoin Magazine

Crypto-Anarchists and Cryptoanarchists - Bitcoin Magazine | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

The word “crypto” is Greek in origin (from kryptós) and means “hidden” or “secret.” Cryptozoology is the study of hidden and rare animals, cryptography is the study of hidden or secret writings, etc. In contemporary times, the use of crypto as a prefix usually designates a secret identification. While few today would declare their allegiance to the ideals of fascism, it is not uncommon to hear people referred to as “crypto-”fascists. The addition of crypto as a prefix in this case indicates a belief that someone is 1) secretly a fascist or 2) they act in ways to surreptitiously bring about fascism.

Open Thoughts 2014 | How many peers does it take to change a light bulb?

Open Thoughts 2014 | How many peers does it take to change a light bulb? | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

By Maxigas, researcher, Internet Interdisciplinary Institute (IN3-UOC). Peer to peer superpowers In this blog entry I summon the Light Side and also the Dark Side, then ask what binds them together. So my answer to the Open Thoughts 2014 Question ― How many peers does it take to change a light bulb? ― is “3”. Namely, Rebel General Dodonna, the Emperor Palpatine himself and Jedi Master Obi-Wan Kenobi. Open Thoughts for Open Force! 1. General Dodonna: “May the Force be with you” Peer production is about creating and maintaining common resources collaboratively. The Internet enables informal mass collaboration on immaterial goods.

"Occupy the Apocalypse"

"Occupy the Apocalypse" | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Two years after the rise and demise of Occupy, we are still spinning around wondering what happened . . . and what comes next. The discussion runs in tail-chasing circles so often that when my radio show co-host suggested that we interview Nathan Schneider, an editor for Waging Nonviolence.org and the author of Thank You Anarchy, Notes From the Occupy Apocalypse, on the subject, I rolled my eyes in exasperation. Why beat the old Occupy horse?

Jacques Ellul - The Betrayal by Technology part 1 of 6 - YouTube

Philosopher and Sociologist Jacques Ellul explains how technology is not "neutral" and is implicated in every aspect of social relations. I hope this video helps explain why green anarchists are not setting for less when they defend small-scale organization.

Center for a Stateless Society » The New Economy and the Cost Principle

Center for a Stateless Society » The New Economy and the Cost Principle | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

Rifkin’s arguments about how reductions in marginal cost affect economic relationships remind me of American anarchist Josiah Warren. An inventor and advocate of sweeping social reform, Warren contended that cost is the equitable limit of price and that legitimate competition would erase the rent, interest and profit streams of the privileged. His work influenced a generation of radicals who looked to competition to solve the economic problems of the day.

"Market Anarchism as Stigmergic Socialism", read by Stephanie Murphy in the M!C Audiobook - YouTube

"This morning my best friend's house burnt down. Kyle Burris, his sister Cecilia Borealis and the rest of their punk house are homeless. They've lost virtually everything. (I lost 95% of my textbooks, notes & paperwork, which were being stored in their attic.) I've known Kyle for well over a decade and he's unquestionably one of the sweetest people in the world. He's an anarchist, a mutualist, a union organizer, and one of the very few born and raised working class portlanders in the radical scene. Unfortunately, being poor, sweet, quiet & shy, he has relatively nothing in the way of a safety net, financially or socially. Both his partner and myself are hundreds of miles away. I can think of few more deserving of support from the radical community."
