Giving more in a sharing economy

Giving more in a sharing economy | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

People’s surplus time is something we can make much more of, particularly with regard to the needs of older people who are isolated or who feel vulnerable. To capitalise on this resource we have to tackle those obstacles that reduce people’s propensity to offer their surplus time. The solutions may be many but include technologies that allow people to identify where their surplus time, however marginal, can be used to good effect, achieving a better connectedness between formal care, informal family care and other community support, enabling organisations and groups to increase mutual support within existing structures, changing the perception of what older people have to offer, and supporting people to create their own systems of informal support. For each of these proposals there is a practical agenda. Finally, and perhaps most difficult to attach practical actions, we need a different ‘meme’ for supporting people that helps people to understand it as an everyday action for everyone.

Book of the Week: Gregg Lahood's critique of new age narcissism | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
New Age transpersonalism leans toward a restrictive non-relational spirituality because of its historical affirmation of individualism and transcendence. Relational spirituality (which is central to the emerging participatory-paradigm) swims against strong and popular currents in New Age-transpersonal thinking, belief, and practice which tend to see spirituality as an individual, personal, ?inner‘ pursuit (often) into Eastern/Oriental non-dualism …

My 2016 Life Experiment: Can I Thrive Living Exclusively on the Sharing Economy? | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
In September last year, I spent a month seeing if I could survive in the sharing economy in London. It was hard. However, one of the reasons it was so hard was I was traveling. I only had a backpack and laptop with me, so I could not leverage the two profitable areas of the sharing economy -- stuff and space.

The Spiral of an "Integral" Delusion, Joe Corbett

The Spiral of an "Integral" Delusion, Joe Corbett | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

One often hears within integral circles of the developmental oscillation between individual and collectivist orientations, so that, for instance, whereas modernity is characterized by an individual achievement ethos, postmodernity is characterized by a collectivist ethos, and therefore post-postmoden integral being and consciousness will be characterized once again by a more integrated individualist ethos, presumably one in which each individual becomes an innovative entrepreneur leading the way in a brave new world of John Galtian self-sufficiency and superhuman individualism.

Why Bernie Sanders Owns the Internet — Medium | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

It’s been a strange and wonderful pleasure to watch a politician like Bernie Sanders dominate the beloved datastream that feeds my brain, connects me with the people I love, and helps spread ideas to others. It’s the first time in my life a candidate of this sort has had a realistic chance of grasping the most powerful office on the planet — and to be honest I find the whole thing rather exciting.
