Paul Mason: Postcapitalism has begun

Mason on postcapitalism in The Guardian:

"Capitalism, it turns out, will not be abolished by forced-march techniques. It will be abolished by creating something more dynamic that exists, at first, almost unseen within the old system, but which will break through, reshaping the economy around new values and behaviours. I call this postcapitalism."

And this is key: Until we have governments predisposed to this is will never gain sufficient traction. The US has taken a yuuuuuge step backward on this account. 

"I believe it offers an escape route – but only if these micro-level projects are nurtured, promoted and protected by a fundamental change in what governments do."
