Direct Democracy and Murray Bookchin's Notion of Revolution.

Saturday, May 18, 2019 -
5:00pm to 7:00pm

Speaker: Metin Guven
The current social and ecological crisis is becoming so crucial that it can only be overcome by a global revolution, which requires active participation of decision making by masses of people. Murray Bookchin has studied social revolutions throughout history to find lessons for how this can be achieved today. How did the idea of democracy emerge and how was direct democracy implemented in ancient Greece? How did those ideas emerge again during the Great French Revolution? What lessons can we draw from Russian revolution of 1917? How can Bookchin's concept of the Third Revolution help to understand modern revolutions?
