Code Red Alarm: Another World right now, before a global counter-guerrilla warfare hits!

What has been happening in Rojava and at turkey-Syrian border is extremely worrisome and tension is rapidly spreading in Turkey. Things can escalate in Turkish cities, putting nationalists, Kurdish movements, Islamist radicals, and progressives into clashes with each other, leading to the destabilization of the last brick on the wall about to collapse. Yesterday in Istanbul University campus there were IS supporters attacking and chanting radical slogans, being attacked back by left groups. Kobane has been under a very heavy attack by IS and total amount of refugees crossing border (and young and men returns to war zone) has been between 2-3 million people. In southern cities there has been increasing aggression towards new comers. No body seems to know what will bring tomorrow. This sounds pretty much like a Global Shock Doctrine in being implemented.

Fair Coop. Target: Planet Earth!

…it became necessary to work on a project to put social cooperation back on the stage of the dominance struggles between economic systems, showing that the path to put human beings back at the center is possible, and is there for us to expand it.

This project has arrived and is called Fair.Coop, The Earth cooperative for a fair economy.

The initial push to boot this initiative is what we have named “hacking money markets to introduce the virus of cooperation”.

This means:

A cryptocurrency, negotiable in an uncontrolled way in decentralized markets around the world can be understood as social capital, in which the number of shares is equal to the total number of created coins.

If we choose it as our founding capital for a cooperative, it means this capital, instead of being accounted in the dominant currency (euro, dollar…) will be in a currency the system can not control, and also, as our cooperative project grows and provides resources and services of proven usefulness, the value of this capital and the entire cryptocurrency will grow accordingly.

Occupying the Money System: Enric Duran introduces Fair.Coop | P2P Foundation

What was missing for us to start out on this path was a monetary initiative present in these markets which, instead of relying on human competition to retain the greatest value, would be based on human cooperation as equals, creating value for all. With the arrival of Fair.Coop, faircoin has become the cryptocurrency focused on the social cooperation that was missing.

Enric Duran initially approached us during the late spring. He’d read Michel Bauwens’ policy paper for Transitioning to a Common Based Society and said that he was interested in collaborating with the P2P Foundation on a number of projects. When we asked for his impressions on Michel’s policy paper, he replied, “Yeah, we’re already doing half of what you describe in the paper at the CIC (Catalan Integral Cooperative)…now we want to do the other half”.
