This is ABSOLUTELY ESSENTIAL READING to understand the people power/direct democracy experiment going on in Kobani. It’s Murray Bookchin adapted to Kurdistan. No wonder NO ONE – not to mention the hyper power – want this to succeed. And The Caliph just wants to kill them all.
Kobani – and Rojava as a whole – is pointing the way towards a REAL VIABLE ALTERNATIVE to the current valley of tears: financialization/turbo-capitalism supported by neoliberal ideology.
Scroll down to the “face-to-face democracy” section; that’s approximately what’s goin’ on in Kobani and Rojava as a whole.
