Seven Ethics Against Capitalism Organizing for a Planetary Commons OLI MOULD Royal Holloway, University of London In this ambitious and compelling book, Oli Mould turns his diagnosis of the perversions at the root of capitalism’s injustices towards defining a new set of ethics we need to succeed in organizing a more just society. In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, “the commons” as a means of providing for all people in our world has come crashing into the foreground. However, to become a viable alternative to violence of capitalism, the commons needs to be grown to a planetary scale. Blending theoretical thinking and real-life examples of commoning in action, Mould guides the reader through a suite of ethical mind sets which can stand firm against capitalism.

However, renewal will require radical thinking. Unions must reset their ambitions beyond the traditional aims of wage bargaining to include resisting profit extraction through interest on personal debts and soaring property rents. From worker ownership to organizing strikes outside of the workplace, they must stake out a different path – or accept a diminishing role.
