Proposed readings for next year

1 Comment

Heading something like ‘Visions for a different democracy’

Could we explore Russell Brand’s New Statesman editorial http://www.newstatesman.com/politics/2013/10/russell-brand-on-revolution together with Stefanie Krasnow (Adbusters) No-Mo Manifesto? https://www.adbusters.org/magazine/110/nomo-manifesto.html and perhaps, something else…from the left, say Roberto Unger: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rJq8VImEBTc&feature=c4-overview-vl&list=PLNdEBvVYMvsC3-vpYQRy_myLYbTKKAmUQ (I find it interesting – and a bit difficult, but he does have some big ideas)

One thought on “Proposed readings for next year

  1. Love this idea. I’ve been thinking a lot about democracy, prompted by the Russell Brand interview and also other discussions on different ways of doing democracy and participating democratically and politically, so I think this would be great.
