About This Post-Capitalism Thing?

post-capitalism

One thing is troubling Guido about the otherwise enjoyable PostCapitalism: A Guide to Our Future by Paul Mason. If, as he argues, goods and services no longer respond to the dictates of neo-liberalism as parallel currencies and time banks, cooperatives and self-managed online spaces flourish with vast numbers of people changing their behaviour, discovering new forms of ownership, lending and doing business that are distinct from, and contrary to, the current system of state-backed corporate capitalism, why is he selling the book on Amazon?

Why didn’t he upload the text to a self-managed online space? Not very “post-capitalist” is it?

Quote of the Day

Trevor Kavanagh’s analysis of the Brexit process…

“Thanks to Mrs May and her useless Chancellor Phil Hammond, this will not come without pain. But we escape with imagination and true British grit or we will be boiled alive.

It means on this centenary Remembrance of our struggle against tyranny, we risk ceding non-military victory in Europe to the undemocratic forces of an unaccountable totalitarian regime.”
