But the thing about lack of concentration rings true for me. I have found that recently I pull up an article, read the first paragraph and go to the last paragraph and scan the middle. So much painstaking writing never gets read...at least by me.
Michael Albert (the guy on the right) runs Znet. (think Chomsky, Howard Zinn, Democracy Now, etc.) He himself mostly promotes a form of anarcho-syndicalism that he calls Parecon (participatory economics), which essentially means that everybody gets to be a plumber, a neuro surgeon and a cole miner for one hour each day and all of production and your personal consumption of toilet paper will have to be negotiated in confusingly interconnected producer and consumer councils. This is supposedly a superior alternative to central planning.

His analysis of the left is pretty interesting and he promotes the establishment of proof of concept as opposed to the constant spreading of suffocating negativity.
