Spain is Ground Zero for the P2P Revolution

When people agree on what they don’t want, i.e. a market dictatorship in the hands of a financial predatory class, but are open-minded about the future, what should they ask for?

The answer is very simply: true democracy, as this leaves all options open to create ‘other worlds’.

This is why the relative indeterminacy of the Spanish movement is not a bug, but a feature. It signals civil society forces have found a format for their protests, and a unifying platform, and this is why what happened in Spain is really Ground Zero for the start of a process towards deep transformation of our civilisation and political economy. It’s early days, just green shoots, and the new generations have to be politically schooled as they face obstacles and repression, but, the tipping point has been reached, and something new has blossomed in the world.
