Lets Go Everywhere


Public Power In The Age Of Empire

As I reflect on the results of the US midterm elections I am reminded of a brilliant speech by Arundhati Roy called “Public Power In The Age Of Empire”.

Here you can listen to it in podcast format. An added bonus are folk songs by Utah Philips.

Interesting speech. The basic issue is how to ensure political accountability and make politicians answerable like in the Iraq war. What is the point of information revolution if that does not happen.
