The Post-Capitalist Project is a cooperative, nonsectarian venture of left journals, popular education centers, and electronic media. Our goal is to make easily available the wide range of new programs, experiments, and theories analyzing the transition beyond capitalism toward a socialist future, recognizing that “socialism” is a protean concept encompassing many different historical experiences and future possibilities.
The project seeks rigorous interrogations of a wide range of questions, addressing possible changes in literally all aspects of our current way of life—from our vision of the potential development of human capacities, to the specific ways a post-capitalist economy—production, distribution and consumption-- could function, role of markets, etc., to how our moral and ethical priorities can help us reshape our society, to our relationship to technology and nature, to our forms of governance/self-governance, to how we organize now for a future world--and much more.
We are also interested in the question of what we can create or have created within capitalism that contributes to a socialist society, as well as why we should be envisioning a future world, especially since we may expect these visions to change and develop in the course of struggle.
Any established left print or digital publication or institution (rather than individuals) is welcome to become a contributor to the Post-Capitalist Project. The principal condition for membership is to contribute at least one piece (an essay, forum, interview etc.) and a maximum of five pieces in a given calendar year and either upload them to the website or email them to email@example.com. Presumably each piece would have already gone through a review and editing process by the contributing organization.
If your publication or popular education center would like to contribute to the project, Please send an application describing your organization/publication to the project steering committee at firstname.lastname@example.org
