Democratizing Public Services

Campaigns have flourished around the world, seeing public ownership as the pathway toward the Green New Deal future.However, public ownership alone is not enough; it must be democratic, accountable and resilient.

However, all of this is simply temporary relief that keeps the economy from slipping into a Great Depression. What it does not do is constitute any structural remedy to the deeper socio-economic and ecological problems that we face. For that we must look elsewhere.
