Pursuance

Impactful, agile, secure civic collaboration The pursuance system is the world's first comprehensive framework for process democracy. That is, it allows individuals with no prior relationship to self-organize into robust, agile entities governed via a "proceduralism of agreement." These entities, called pursuances, in turn engage and collaborate among themselves to whatever extent they choose, leading…

THE ORGANIZATIONAL PRINCIPLES OF A UNIFORM ECONOMIC PLAN (by Alexander Bogdanov)

THE ORGANIZATIONAL PRINCIPLES OF A UNIFORM ECONOMIC PLAN (by Alexander Bogdanov) | Networked Labour | Scoop.it

Below text, dated January 1921, was a lecture that had to wait four years after the brake out of the first systemic level communist revolution in Russia -as one of the outcomes of the first of the, as then was called, inter-imperialist wars. 


 It was exactly 95 years ago, when Alexander Bogdanov had given this lecture at the First Scientific Organisation of Labour ‘Congress’, in Moscow. Alexander Bogdanov was one of the ultraleft protagonists of the Bolshevik fraction, although he did never believe in revolution that comes from the top, by any organizer classes and upon (and for) those who are being organized. 


 Below article was written in 2012, in the absence of knowledge of Bogdanov and his work; in order projecting a self-organizing model for workers, taking the recuperation of the knowledge of the entire production process -which is normally held by ‘scinetific managers’, experts in organizational management who design and redesign the whole system in accordance with the interest of the company management. 


Organizing, P2P Networking, and Mapping of the Production Process by the Workers: an Argument for a ‘New Unionism 2.0’ 


 After several years of deep study of Alexander Bogdanov, I can today strongly assert that the vison he gives in below text does not reflect a top down economic planing strategy for the revolutionary Bolshevik leaderships.

As in the principle stand Bogdanov showed before Lenin, first and foremost, as well as others; in Proletkult movement, in RDSLP and VPERED, and also in his Red Star; the vision he put forward is a projection into a future society. A society where people are reached to a level of self-organization and empowerment, at the planet level. Economic activity is not taken separate from cultural and political ones; causing anarchic or dis/less organized whole producing entropy; but instead an advanced, structurally uniform, but built-up-from-grassroots-economic-network the allow full autonomy to its individual constituent parts.. a networked system in which all empowers one, while one empowers all. 


That is why I would read the title as peer to peer scientific organization of labour at a societal level…

To all the oppressed peoples' and communities of the World: Stand up, assemble, and fight for the peace, life, and dignity! 


A section of the global ruling classes, namely liberal capitalists, had been long pursuing their own program and agenda to counter the rise of Chinese and other national capitalist classes from Russia ans others, in contestation to the program and agenda of the other, conservative, globalist ruling class factions.

The way they have gave this in fight of elephants, by forming and funding alliances of and with progressive left and left liberals, as well as libertarians and some segment of anarchist and communitarian groups, have resulted in mistrust to left in general and caused the failure and expansion of the extreme right wing and fascist politics and politicians like Trump, Putin, Erdogan, May, Le Pen, Wilders and others, across the world. The entire world today came to the brink of a yet another inter capitalist and imperialist world War, where nuclear aresenal can unleashed and burn-down billions of innocent people globally.

Learning the Future: Bogdanov, Neurath, and Scientific Socialism | Networked Labour | Scoop.it
Socialism has had a sort of poor track record as of late when it comes to science and technology. From Stalin’s violent repression of Mendelian genetics (and privileging of the pseudo-science of Trofim Lysenko) to the modern contemporary contingencies of anarcho-primitivists, it’s often easy to see what is ostensibly an ideology of advancement oscillating itself…

PEER VALUE: ADVANCING THE COMMONS COLLABORATIVE ECONOMY
AMSTERDAM. SEPTEMBER 2-3, 2016
REGISTER

Peer Value:Advancing the Commons Collaborative Economy is a conference integrating conversations and plans of action for shaping and connecting the Commons on a global level.


The conference is organized along three tracks: 


Track 1: P2P: Inclusive Politics, Activism and Law for the Commons 

Track 2: Decentralized Tech and Beyond:Global Design,Local Production 

Track 3: From Platform to Open Cooperativism 


We will explore questions such as:
What are the conditions that encourage communities to work as peers, creating commons?
What are the best practices communities can adopt to safeguard their resilience?
Decentralization - why is it important, and how is it implemented and maintained?
How can the working methodologies honed by well-established digital communities act as transitional guidelines for sustainable “material” manufacturing?
What about social innovation and livelihoods - how does contributory and open accounting work with the systems of value creation found in CBPP?
How can civil society participate in recommending policy proposals that support CBPP for governments at the local, regional, national - even global - levels?
Join your peers, add your voice and take part in the growing conversation about the Commons as an important, emerging collaborative social model.
