This really is a book in two parts. The whole first half is dedicated to a ruthless dissection of all that is wrong with democracy, communism, and the organization of movements like Occupy Wall Street. It's brilliant, and Heather Marsh manages to build up anticipation to her thoughts on how State-less stigmergy, and respect for those whose work currently has no monetary value (mothers, in particular), can bring about a better world. I couldn't put the book down, even though she's careful to manage expectations in the intro: she doesn't have all the answers...and that's very true. The second half was a bit of a let down, because the world it describes is actually a little dystopian. In Heather Marsh's future society, our currency won't be money anymore, but rather reputation and acceptance, given by the communities we're members of. She elaborates on the success of the Internet to imagine radically transparent governance and education for all, creating epistemic communities with knowledge bridges...but she also uses collective shunning as the main means of regulating anti-social behaviour, which just seems, well, just very arbitrary. You can almost sense she's rushing through writing the last chapters so she can get back to taking concrete action on the ground. Despite this, I highly recommend this book, its deconstruction of our social and economic ills will linger in your thoughts for a long time.
