        Dear Michel. Is this Facebook group about P2P any more, or is it about Left, Culture Wars, or something else? I again suggest that this kind of discussion should move to some other forum.
        Michel Bauwens
        Kari-Hans Kommonen : I respect your feelings and opinions, but it is impossible for a p2p/commons forum not to address what constitutes the greatest dangers for its development. I respectfully disagree and this forum will retain its following focus: 1) focus on p2p and commons developments 2) focus on the context in which it occurs 3) deep thought about equality vs hierarchy and all the issues it elicits 4) attention to the fascism of our time, i.e. the woke ideology which most threatens the development of human equality.
        Kari-Hans Kommonen
        Michel Bauwens respecfully, point 4 and your perception of what you call woke is not the form of fascism that most threatens the development of human equality, please e.g. observe events in Ukraine, and in my opinion, you are dominating that opinion on this forum in a way that is alienating many people with P2P interests, and I would continue to recommend that you found another page for your ”woke fascism” critique and avoid publishing it here.

        Kari-Hans Kommonen Much of what Michel Bauwens is trying to address here, I would call quixotic.
      • Lucy Wills
        Gerhard Jung at best. I also had considered for a while that such things were being posted for conversation or debate but that doesn’t seem to be the case. Each time I do this I am not engaged with properly but just faced with the same argument over and over again. Sigh.

        Kari-Hans Kommonen I dislike the left woke about as much as anyone alive and have been cancelled by them on several occasions, and in all honesty, I agree with you.
      • Kari-Hans Kommonen
        Michel, I want to add that I am writing these comments because I do respect and value the work you have done over the years and still do for furthering the P2P and commons matters, but ever since you experienced the cancel events, which understandably …

        Certainly the ongoing and increasingly aggressive redpilling of Bauwens has ruined the P2P brand for me. I regret ever having been enthusiastic about it. Same for the free culture movement and Nina Paley. One is judged by the company one keeps, and I a…

        Michel is right. I have repeatedly seen people driven out of charitable organizations due to the very “woke fascism” cited. I think that is pretty germane to any discussion of the commons.

        Dean Sayers this is not just one thread. It is one in a long series of manifestos, aiming to alert all of us to this threat which for many is seen completely differently. I will not get entangled in the deeper discussion. I am just trying to point out …

        Roy Hanfling I have a lot of respect for Michel’s long curatorship in this forum, and it has for a long time been a very helpful resource. Lately sadly less so, as the focus has become something else.

        Kari-Hans Kommonen : I can’t find your other thread on sex being a spectrum (the famous 1% ‘in between’ the 99%). You may like this:
