decrease at every level of consumerism is a critical, high-challenged
goal. It needs social support. Shared knowledge is an important dynamic
in the participatory process. Richard Barbrook (1999) refers to online
gift-giving as cybercommunism. It is very hard to police or to stop these
acts of sharing. The networked cultures, politics and poetics are a tool
for downsizing productive compulsion and worship of western consumerism.
« La décroissance ne propose pas de vivre moins, mais mieux
avec moins de biens et plus de liens. » (Charte de la décroissance)
