Eben Moglen on the Commons as an Actor in Transforming the Global Political Economy

“The Commons has become active. It is no longer the passive traditional economy displaced by the superiority of ownership. It is now the new, the productive, and most importantly, it is the process that promisses to allow every brain on earth to learn.”

A recommended 3-part lecture by Eben Moglen.


“An intriguing lecture on the history and future of the Commons. Main focus lies on how the Commons, historically constantly reduced by hierarchical forms of ownership, now turn to become an active force, which, in its capacity for education, becomes central to all political, cultural, and environmental efforts. Fascinating how the Commons are put into perspective here”
