  •  Welcome shantysue, your enthusiaism is (4+ / 0-)

    truly infectious!  We are always happy for new participants/members.

    Agree completely that we have lost our way, the vast majority on this planet live in deliberately created poverty while a small number live off the fat of the land, control our fates and the fate of our planet all in the name of making profits. The slogan "people before profits" is an essential phrase in this context.

    I think that a diary on the idea of a gift economy would certainly create an interesting discussion. Unfortunately, I am not well versed enough in the idea to do it justice. Perhaps there are others in the group that have more knowledge than I do and will volunteer to do a diary on the subject.

    Please stay and contribute, we are very patient and really appreciate and welcome true anti-capitalists or people that are starting to move in that direction. The Anticapitalist meet-up diaries are here every sunday at 3pm pacific (6 pm eastern); in the meantime, there is the anti-capitalist chat which is published whenever someone has a topic they want to write.
