Conspicuous production

Ben Redford

For many years now, the tools and processes of the dominant production system have been protected and defended by laws, patents and astronomical costs.

This is no longer the case. The very products of that system hold the potential to be the tools of a more democratic, mutually beneficial way of creating our material culture. Every home is a potential factory. Every object a potential tool. Every person a potential master of their own production. Everyone can be a maker now.
