390: Ephemeralization and Freedom


C-Realm_390_coverKMO welcomes Kevin A. Carson, "free market anti-capitalist" and the author of  to the C-Realm to talk about economics, technology, natural and artificial property rights, and the general outlines of the successor society that is arising to meet human needs as the over-built infrastructure of global corporate capitalism rots from neglect. They also touch upon R. Buckminster Fuller's concept of the ephemeralization of technology. Kevin argues that an industrial society that can no longer afford to maintain its energy and capital-intensive infrastructure and is transitioning to a distributed, more supple mode of production looks a lot like a civilization that is receding from it's peak of prosperity and technical prowess in a process that John Michael Greer describes as catabolic collapse.  The interlude features excerpts from a 1976 interview with R. Buckminster Fuller, Allen Ginsberg, and William S. Burroughs.
