In today's world, the omnipresent capitalist predation strangles every breath of life. The violation of rights and freedoms, the acceleration of the climate emergency or the distancing of citizens from institutions are consequences of a toxic system that thinks only of economic profit and blindly relies on an impossible mantra: infinite growth, in a finite world.
The Politics of Social Ecology: Libertarian Municipalism is a key tool meticulously developed by Janet Biehl to introduce us to the ideas of one of the greatest figures of alternative thought of the late 20th century: Murray Bookchin. A voice that managed to shape a way through which to reconfigure the space of counter-power, in order to move towards a more just world.
The idea of replacing the nation-state through confederated popular assemblies that take over municipal power is the backbone of this work. The Politics of Social Ecology: Libertarian Municipalism will give the keys to be able to shape this new system by explaining the key concepts and elements, as well as describing real cases throughout history.
