Libertarian socialist caucus on Gar Alperovitz: The Pluralist Commonwealth

They commented in this FB post on the following video by Alperovitz:

"We socialists all know the broad strokes of the system we want to build: common ownership of the key infrastructure of society democratically managed through worker control to meet everyone's basic human needs. But what about the details? How do we get there? What institutions would such a society have to contain, and can we build these now? That's where we often disagree.

"Gar Alperovitz's "Pluralist Commonwealth" is one way of thinking through what socialism could look like from a libertarian socialist point of view. His main insight is that common ownership can take multiple forms across various aspects of the economy, and that these have to be turned into institutions -- worker coops, credit unions, democratic economic planning, etc -- which can network with each other, feed into one another, and thus grow together."
