Towards a regenerative capitalism ? | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
There is a bit of a contradiction in this approach, which calls us to go beyond the capitalism-socialism dichotomy, but then offers capitalism, albeit regenerative, as a solution.

OuiShare 2015, From Transition to Transformation: The Elephant in the Room

OuiShare 2015, From Transition to Transformation: The Elephant in the Room | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

#OSFest15  -  May 21, 22:  Just a few steps into the main entry hall of Cabaret Sauvage, the site of the OuiShare 2015 event, was a large, black chalkboard. On the board there was a drawing of an elephant, and the phrase, “Share Your Elephant in the Room”. In case the expression “elephant in the room” isn’t familiar, it refers to a very obvious fact which nobody wants to talk about, one which is more convenient to politely ignore. I regret not taking a picture of that sign, because as the second and third days of OuiShareFest 2015 proceeded, it became clear that the elephant was loose in the room and, more importantly, lots of voices were calling him out.

Naomi Klein’s lessons for the Green movement - Green European Journal | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
If the Green movement is to change the status quo, it will have to change too. The interrelationship between the plundering of the earth and the exploitation of people requires a much more principled and more consistent struggle against the capitalist system than we have seen in recent decades.

Towards a new municipal agenda in Spain | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
What the Spanish media ignore about this new generation of activist-politicians is why they became famous enough to put on a ballot in the first place: their roots in prominent local struggles and their willingness to spearhead radical democratic participation.

The fragile beauty of peer-to-peer activism: The public campaign for the rights of media consumers in South Korea

In South Korea, the oligopoly of three conservative media conglomerates, popularly dubbed Chojoongdong, has been identified as a hindrance to the country’s democratic consolidation. This issue came to the fore during the mass candlelight protests in Seoul in 2008 against the then newly elected conservative government’s resumption of American beef imports despite public concern over the credibility of US food regulation. Born out of the beef protests was a peer-to-peer (P2P) network of individual citizens who called for media reform, condemning what they saw as Chojoongdong’s biased dominance of public discourse. Based on an ethnographic study of the inception and evolution of this digitally mediated network, Eonsoju, from 2008 to 2013, this article discusses the spatial opportunities and institutional challenges of digital activism. Eonsoju initially demonstrated a considerable potential of a P2P model for activism, but it soon had to compromise its structural and operational strengths due to legal pressures.

Unravelling capitalism's hidden networks of power

Unravelling capitalism's hidden networks of power | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

NEVER again? The global financial crisis of 2008 saw banks around the world bailed out to the tune of billions by governments worried that the entire financial system was in meltdown. "Too big to fail", the thinking went, and since then, efforts have been made to increase scrutiny of large institutions. But the latest research suggests a much more sophisticated analysis is needed to prevent another crisis.
