Call for Contributors:
We are inviting peer producers and commoners alike to join us to peer produce a commons knowledge resource that will include text books, articles, audio, video and other sorts of digital material that will help us to address and broaden the needed dialogue between critical social theories on p2p, commons and global political economy on the other, and the political and cultural praxis towards emancipatory commons transitions that will allow humanity to go beyond the vision promised by capitalisms, while avoiding the worse like fascisms and wars to dominate the planet and destroy more lives. Believeing that it became by now cyristal clear that the humanity is passing through yet another world historical passage of which one side is dark and fearful: Deepening systemic crises, serious threats of regional and global wars, normalisation of extreme right and religious fundamentalisms, as well as natural and human disasters, all caused by the current mode of production. Yet the other side is bright and hopeful: Where the emergence of the new become clear in the realities and practices of the p2p and the commons, which by now proven themselves as not only concepts but also practices that they are bearing ‘the seeds of the new’ potential forms to constitute, what Marx referred as the ‘associated mode of production’ -more then one and a half century ago; while they also promise possibility for creation of what Kropotkin and Buchkin thought as ‘communal mutual aid society’ -in the previous century, yet to be created and consolidated collectively by painful efforts and struggle. Therefore encouraging all those who are interested and can contribute in this special collaborative project through which we want to develop structured and systematic pool of pedagogical material as base for free access self- and floss- high level remote emancipatory education activities orgniased by anyone who wishes.
