Parecon

I continue to be interested in reviews of Michael Albert's book. You know the one, he's been trumpeting it for years on Znet. I have less interest in actually reading it. I mean, if you think my prose is formulaic, Scottishly circuitous or leaden...But this review by Eric just really hits the spot (and while I'm at it, so did this).
By railing against capital’s illegitimacy–and its suspension of some higher, presumably more communistic nature–he ends up missing the creative pleasures available in the act of falling.


Indeed as Michael Bérubé notes, having grown from 15,000 to 30 million in under four years, the blogosphere is more expansive every moment, and in ways both bad and good.
