The Rebirth of Guilds “Restoring the social fabric of our communities”


This series of blogs traces the history of guilds and the modern forces driving their re-emergence: failure of industrial institutions, technology that speeds up learning, a search for intimate community and the de-evolution of power from the central state.  Further, the need for social change is discussed along with a prescription of the functions these new guilds can perform, and those they cannot.  We conclude this series with a brief discussion of how modern guilds can offer ownership of the means of social preservation to workers of the future.
