On participatory culture and politics

Standard

” Participatory culture stimulates participatory politics. In fact, it is participatory politics. It creates social solidarity while proposing and implementing a vision of a better world. It generates hope where hope seems absent. It allows people to take back control. Most importantly, it can appeal to anyone, whatever their prior affiliations might be ”

George Monbiot, ‘This is how people can truly take back control: from the bottom up”, The Guardian
