Interesting stuff. Some food for thought on communalism’s role in techno-utopianism; horizontalism vs verticalism; the politics of infrastructure.

I think its important to note that this differs from the Bookchin flavor of communalism. While he thought technology had liberatory potential, I think the micropolitics he championed was in reaction to these communes and their apolitical prefigurative projects rather than in support of them. The liberatory potential could only be realized in a revolutionary climate where political pressure wws consistently applied to shape the direction of its development, implementation, and maintenance.
