Move Commons

About | Comunes Comunes is a non-profit collective dedicated toa) Encourage the protection and expansion of the Commons [1] through our actions. The Comunes approach has the Commons as central idea, using it as a guideline for its actions. It facilitates the discovery and construction of alternatives following a simple rule of three, and it encourages decentralized collaboration through the commons-based peer production. The world elites can be seen [2] as social networks, in which each elite member is a node. When an elite member falls for any reason (e.g. media scandals), the network survives and its ability to develop plans is untouched: it will just re-wire covering the hole left by the missing member, as every social network does (as there are multiple paths for communicating two nodes). On the other hand, we in Comunes see the world of social movements, NGOs and grassroots collectives as another social network, but this time open and public. Difficult to form a new node.
