Life After Capitalism (Bulgaria)
|Created on:||4th September 2012|
We are living in times in which an economic theory has turned into a total ideology dominating all spheres of our lives. Ideology, argued for being perfect, for being the end of history, that it can ensure prosperity and happiness for mankind and that the limits of the human creative potential and social organization have been reached.
Almost all of the articles here will be in bulgarian, because our goal is to start a local movement here in Bulgaria (and because these articles are translations mostly from english, which can be found in the web). We'll do our best to translate in english and publish here all articles, which we have written...
You can also check the first book, published by the project - "Asking we walk. Life after capitalism", a collection of the best articles, published during the first year of existence of this project. The book is already sold out!
"With the global economy facing severe crisis on many fronts, the search for ways to construct a more free and just society takes on increased urgency. The contributions collected here should stimulate not only thought but also actions that cannot be too long delayed if there is to be hope of decent survival."
"The failures of capitalism are ceaseless and limitless in the depravity, indignity, and material and social pain they impose. Hypocrisy, staravtion, war, and even at its best - a rat race in which we all become rats gnawing on each others souls. All citizens now know that - sometimes explicitly, sometimes vaguely. Conclusion: Either we ignore capitalism's reality until it annihilates us - or we replace it. But replacing it requires that we think about, experiment with, refine and implement new ways of conducting economic and social life. And that is what this book admirably does so we should read it, think on it, and then advance the process ourselves, too."
"This book contains a wide selection of essays assessing the present, and projecting into the future ideas for our better selves and the world around us, as well as how to get from here to there. Read this book if you want to see what these many thinkers say about the path forward."
