December 14, 2014 at noon: Anarchy: Dream or Nightmare? with James Martel
Anarchism says there’s no need for a state, that it would be better to have a society without central government. Anarchists dislike the often heavy-handed authority that government brings. Yet the dream of the stateless society is not a simple one. How can we have law and order without government? What’s involved in a self-governed society, free from authority? And how could we ever peacefully transition from central governance to anarchy? John and Ken question authority with James Martel from San Francisco State University, editor of How Not to be Governed: Readings and Interpretations from a Critical Anarchist Left.
December 14, 2014 at 3:00pm: Cyber-Activism with Lucy Bernholz
Whether it’s making donations and signing petitions online, or using social media to highlight political causes, cyber-activism has never been easier. With a few clicks, we can make our voices heard around the globe. But who’s listening, and is anything actually changing? Does cyber-activism mobilize real-world action on the ground? Or does it reduce political engagement to simple mouse-clicking, and ultimately threaten the subversive nature of change? John and Ken get active with Lucy Bernolz, co-author of “Disrupting Philanthropy:
Technology and the Future of the Social Sector.”
The event runs 60 minutes without intermission. It is recommended for ages 12 and older. Please do not bring infants to the show.
