Gar Alperovitz is co-founder of The Democracy Collaborative, which gave birth to TheNext System.org. Principles of a Pluralist Commonwealth seeks to answer these questions:
If the design of corporate capitalism is unable to sustain values of equality, genuine democracy, liberty, and ecological sustainability as a matter of inherent systemic architecture, what systemic ‘design’ might ultimately achieve and sustain these values? and
How specifically might it be possible to move forward, especially in difficult political times, to lay foundations for a transformation in the direction of a serious new systemic answer?
Before we interview Professor Alperovitz, we remember the passing of Father Miguel d’Excoto Brockman.
