Policy & FLOSS for the Commons – upcoming P2Pvalue Event in Barcelona | P2P Foundation
The P2P Foundation often has good and interesting works: suggestive. Not remedies that one must follow, not ideological exegeses or rules. So, this event ought to be of interest. The question, though, is what one does afterward. The quick answer: We are doing it, anyway. The late-20th century collapse of the social, its routing to the exploitative, seems to be lifting, if only judging from the wave of neo-populist movements around the world.
But terms do need conceptual firmness if not actual rigor. Like “community,” a term that’s been so overused, so confused, so misused as to drive one to want something better, or at least more meaningful. But there really isn’t a “better” term, is there?
