John P. Clark’s new book, The Impossible Community, comes out of the anarchist Social Ecology tendency of Murray Bookchin.

The latter have inspired the world with their defense of an egalitarian, gender-equal community against the superior weapons of the Islamic State butchers. For Clark, Hegel’s dialectic addresses the problem of free and full development after a revolution when new forms like popular assemblies appear. For Bookchin these popular assemblies are purely “unmediated … Continued

The Internet is great because it belongs to all of us equally, providing a level playing field. The web as we know it today is founded on the principle of ‘Net Neutrality’ — the idea that data, no matter who it is coming from or who is receiving it, should be given the same priority.  Policymakers in the US are currently considering whether or not to adopt rules that protect Net Neutrality.
