There is a new paradigm afoot and it is called the collaborative commons. Capitalism is under pressure as automation and technology force the cost of goods toward zero marginal cost. The internet is making a global commons possible. People are finding ways to work outside the capitalist system. The are diversifying and collaborating to find ways to achieve common goals.
Bitcoins is just one example. This informal banking system is revolutionizing how money is handled and it has the potential to wipe out money transfer firms like Western Union. People are coming together in cooperatives, NGOs and MLMs to cut out the middle man and focus on solving our human problems. Capitalism is about how much we have. The collaborative commons, facilitated by the internet, is about how much we can share and how we can create a quality, sustainable life for everyone.
