George Monbiot: “This is how people can truly take back control: from the bottom up.”

Restoring community life through “think networks“:  “Our atomised communities can heal themselves. Through local initiatives we can regenerate our culture and make politics relevant again.

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 seemed absent. It allows people to take back control. Most importantly, it can appeal to anyone, whatever their prior affiliations might be. It begins to generate a kinder public life, built on intrinsic values.”
