Call-out for the First Gathering of the Coordination of Libertarian Infrastructures

[Note on terminology for North American audiences: «libertarian» is a non-specific, more inclusive synonym of «anarchist». The term first came into being in France as a direct synonym at a time when the term «anarchist» could not get past the press censors.

Debate: Gift Economy

The gift economy is the oldest and most practiced economy in human history. Not only does it precede the use of money, private property, slavery, and other economic practices designed to favor accumulation and exploitation, but it also continues to exist in the shadows of capitalism, given that the logic of the market—of competition, exploitation, domination—still does not control everything.
