Book Talk: Free, Fair, & Alive – The Insurgent Power of the Commons

October 15, 2019 @ 7:00 pm - 8:00 pm
  • This event has passed.

Amherst resident David Bollier will talk about his & Silke Helfrich’s new book, Free, Fair, & Alive: The Insurgent Power of the Commons.   From co-housing & agroecology to fisheries & open-source everything, people are increasingly using “commoning” to emancipate themselves from a predatory market-state system.   Free, Fair, & Alive presents a foundational re-thinking of the commons — the self-organized social system that humans have used for millennia to meet their needs.   It offers a compelling vision of a future beyond the dead-end binary of capitalism versus socialism that has almost brought the world to its knees.   Written by two leading commons activists of our time, this guide is a penetrating cultural critique, table-pounding political treatise, & practical playbook.
