Residents in areas such as Jamaica Plain and Brighton may have been pondering the new fliers showing up on utility poles advocating things such as free transit and a ban on yuppies.
They're the work of People for Democratic Revolution, which advocates a revolution (right down to troops turning their guns on their commanders if need be) to turn the US into a massive series of tiny little classless communities where all decisions are made by mutual agreement of members.

A sharing economy is one in which all the people in it mutually agree to work reasonably and to share among themselves the products and services they produce, for free, according to reasonable need or desire, with scarce things rationed according to need in an equitable manner. The local assembly decides what is reasonable, and how scarce things are to be equitably rationed.
In their ideal society, these little communities would occasionally have to work with surrounding communities:
Social and economic and all other kinds of order or coordination on a larger-than-local scale is accomplished by local assemblies sending delegates to meet with delegates from other local assemblies (in what we call non-local assemblies). Non-local assemblies do not write laws; instead they craft proposals that the local assemblies implement or not as they wish. In practice, there is back and forth negotiation between local assemblies and non-local assemblies (i.e., of delegates) in an attempt to arrive at a proposal that is acceptable to enough local assemblies to be actually implemented.
