The New Socialism Global Collectivist Society Is Coming Online

leave a comment »

The frantic global rush to connect everyone to everyone, all the time, is quietly giving rise to a revised version of socialism… Nearly every day another startup proudly heralds a new way to harness community action. These developments suggest a steady move toward a sort of socialism uniquely tuned for a networked world…

It is not anti-American; indeed, digital socialism may be the newest American innovation. While old-school socialism was an arm of the state, digital socialism is socialism without the state. This new brand of socialism currently operates in the realm of culture and economics, rather than government—for now.

Sharing, cooperation, collaboration, and collectivism – where will it all lead?
