An Outline for the Equitism Manifesto
We're using this global pandemic to write our treatise on an alternative vision as a framework for what we want to build with you, our community.
We want a political and cultural system nourished by community ownership, balancing systemic tensions, infinite play, and intersecting worlds.
We call it Equitism - another way of talking about the future that doesn't revert to the baggage of capitalism and socialism.
We honor the past while focusing on the questions and tensions of our future that might move us away from our current fragility, beyond resilience, and towards a lasting structural and personal strength.
Here's the beginning outline - we are still writing and editing and collaborating. If you have thoughts, let us know!
