"Together we know everything, together we have everything"

Welcome to the P2P Foundation Wiki

The P2P Foundation is an international organization focused on studying, researching, documenting and promoting peer to peer practices in a very broad sense. This wiki is our knowledge commons. Our motto is "Together we know everything, together we have everything", i.e. pooling our resources through commons, creates prosperity for all. We document thousands of initiatives going in that direction on order to create "Hope with evidence".

The central question we address is the following:

* "How can we enable and encourage the formation of Global Cooperative Networks within the existing Global Adversarial Network? How could these bubbles form, grow, merge and eventually shift the whole civilisation towards a more cooperative generative process." (John Ringland [1])

For a quick introduction to the P2P Foundation see our new homepage. For an introduction to our worldview, see the Commons Transition Primer website.

"In order to change an existing paradigm you do not struggle to try and change the problematic model. You create a new model and make the old one obsolete. That, in essence, is the higher service to which we are all being called." ~ Buckminster Fuller ~

The P2P Foundation consists of autonomous but internetworked initiatives:

  1. The knowledge commons, such as this wiki, a blog, and a network of half a dozen FB groups where we do a pluralistic curation of p2p/commons developments.
  2. The P2P Foundation Research Network, coordinated by Jose Ramos, which focuses on monitoring and activating research.
  3. An official non-profit, chaired by Evi Swinnen, in Ghent, Belgium. (The original 'Foundation', established in Amsterdam, is in the process of being transferred to our research network)

Thanks to Javier Arturo Rodriguez for the technical help in maintaining this wiki, and for the huge editorial assistance by Simon Grant.

Our Ideas

The theoretical foundations are based on the work of Michel Bauwens and others.

Overview of P2P Transition Proposals

This is a summary of our key structural arguments for commons/p2p-centric social change:

  1. in capitalism there is a specific articulation of market/community (nation)/command (state) in which the market is dominant.
  2. a commons-centric economy has a different articulation in which the communal mechanisms of pooling shared resources are dominant.
  3. the commons-based processes are increasing in importance within capitalism facing systemic crises
  4. It is possible to develop a strategy for deepening and expanding the weight of the commons-based processes (transvestment, etc.).
  5. If sustained, such a strategy could ultimate erode the dominance of capitalism and create a new post-capitalist and commons-centric society.
