Cooperative Society
2019
The text of this artwork is inspired by the book
Non-Violence or Non-Existence
- an introduction to Mahatma Gandhi's ideology of non-violent society by the Indian activist
Satish Kumar
.
Satish Kumar summarises Gandhi's belief that capitalism operates against the interests of society because it is inherently divisive.

He suggests that happiness is only to be found when social and economic organisation is based on cooperation. The complete text can be accessed at
