The politics of the governed. Frankfurt in Greece, Athens in Europe

The politics of the governed. Frankfurt in Greece, Athens in Europe | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
 Greek elections are having their effects. We are not meaning celebrations in the squares, smiles or declarations of respect, but the clash with European and global financial institutions. In front of this clash, even those governments which offered Tsipras their «good wishes», like the Italian one, now hasten to declare that the answer of the ECB is «legitimate». Renzi the hero, who is ready to change the world when this change means to increase the precarization of labour and life or to strengthen the executive power of the State, barricades himself behind formalism when we come to the point. It is not surprising. Beyond Renzi’s political bullying, what is happening questions the political initiative of social movements in a moment in which, as it has been said, the victory of Syriza is a breach that we should maintain open and enlarge. We do neither imagine the eternal return of the same, nor we predict improbable repetitions of what actually happened in a neighbour country. In this situation, to ask what the so-called Italian Left can or cannot do is politically irrelevant. The masses which had flown into Plaza del Sol in support of Podemos, but also those who overfilled again Syntagma Square, are the sign of a state of fibrillation whose effects are not granted.

How doea Greeces politics effect the EU?

Andrew and Big Devs's curator insight, February 10, 2015 1:47 PM

Political- Greek election effects are starting to show off now. Now many are wondering if anything is legitimate or not. Renzi the hero is barricading himself behind formalism. They do not see how anything will be the same after this.

Ten New Findings that Will Revolutionize Architecture | P2P Foundation

Ten New Findings that Will Revolutionize Architecture | P2P Foundation | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it
A key lesson for designers of all kinds is that product design can’t really be separated from environmental design. We are all, in some sense, environmental designers, working in the human environment. Since every system is only partially closed, we have to find ways to work on these systems as open systems — that is, as parts of larger, optimizing wholes. Routine failure to do so has led to our ecological misfortunes.

When was the last time you saw Greeks protesting in support of  the government? Exactly this is happening right now outside the Parliament with crowds of people flocking to Syntagma Square and raise their voice against the decision of the European Central Bank, to stop accepting Greek bonds as collateral for granting liquidity.

Capitalism, Post-Capitalism and Transition Strategies towards a Sustainable and Socially Just P2P Society | Havens Center

Capitalism, Post-Capitalism and Transition Strategies towards a Sustainable and Socially Just P2P Society | Havens Center | Peer2Politics | Scoop.it

During the second week of his visit, Michel Bauwens has organized three seminars linked to Google-hangout discussions with experts on specific problems connected to understanding economic “value” in a commons based, collaborative, contributory economy. The fundamental issue to be explored is how to generate sustainable living for people who fully engage the emerging p2p economy. This is a central issue in a Real Utopias logic of social transformation: What are the effective strategies for building enclaves of alternative economic practices within capitalism that (a) embody emancipatory principles, (b) provide sustainable ways for people to gain their livelihoods through the alternative practices, and (c) have a dynamic capacity to expand the space for post-capitalist economic relations and thus erode the hegemony of capitalism itself?
