Real Utopia: Participatory Society for the 21st Century
With each election cycle, it’s become increasingly clear to me that the United States must make an immediate transition from representative democracy to participatory democracy if our species hopes to be around another 50 years. Understanding how nations like Venezuela are making this transition is essential to building our own “utopia”.
“Real Utopia: Participatory Society for the 21st Century” is a Left Forum Panel, hosted by Z Communications which took place at Cooper Union, NYC, on 3/15/2008. It was filmed by Charngchi Way (Chomskyan) and David Buccola (Buddhagem). Much props to them.
