- Duke University Press - Radical Care
Universal care means that we are all collectively responsible for hands-on care work as well as the work necessary for the maintenance of communities and the planet. It means teaching boys caring responsibilities and emotional literacy. It translates into reclaiming forms of genuinely communal life—from schools to public space to lending libraries. It means shortening the working week so that caring for children, for example, can be more easily shared. It involves reversing the corporate marketisation of care and caring infra-structures, both by “insourcing” and by extending democratic alternatives to capitalist markets, which have never aligned well with the work of caring. It also means restoring and radically deepening our welfare states, both centrally and locally, through progressive forms of municipalism and strengthening or introducing universal basic services. Beyond this, it means mobilising and cultivating a radical conviviality, including more porous borders, and commitment to drawing up green new deals for a sustainable future at the transnational level.
