The Fairy Light is spoken of by many names, in myriad languages, across diverse faith traditions, deeply ingrained within folklore and legend around the world. Real or not, throughout the ages, fairy light has served as a storytelling device illustrating how a false but comforting, deeply held belief, some vain hope or goal, can easily lead us on, as if spellbound, to end in misery, bitter ruin, even death.
Λп Solas Sí is the inception cooperative and cultural liaison of the Ɍáıthold Cooperatıve Uпıoп, a proposed federated union of cooperative communities based on democratic socialist principles. We seek to create public-private cultural usability labs, a ‘communication by demonstration’ model, allowing people to experientially discover how such communities can work.
This is an innovation in cooperativism, intended for grassroots nourished more by knowledge and deliberation than calculated emotional appeal and overly simple quick solutions for deep problems that have troubled us all for generations.
