The architects of our lives are divided. There are those who insist that there is still no alternative to neoliberalism. Then there are those advocating change, those who seek to persuade us that capitalism can be saved from itself. They tell us that environmental disaster can be averted through technological solutions, that deeply rooted social injustices can be cured with economic growth, that we’ll be safer with more police on our streets.
And yet, we know that capitalism is dying, that its lies have been unmasked, that its grip on our world and our lives is maintained only through expropriations, dependency and commodified desires. In Common is a collection of works that see an end to capitalism, that provide us with techniques for building a future in common.
