You Can't Steal a Gift: Peer to Peer Politics.
Peer to peer networks are already based upon a common purpose. A common,
unifying purpose along with a measure of autonomy, and a chance for
mastery seem to be stronger motivators than money or other extrinsic
Voluntary cooperation on common projects also fits into Gandhian
economics as swadeshi, local production. Daily practice of swadeshi was
the basis of both Gandhian nonviolence and economics. Can we think of
Linux and Wikipedia and the other usual suspects examples of
global/local P2P as swadeshi systems?
