Greeks, postmodernity, and the rethinking of democracy
Found this fascinating interview on openDemocracy by way of meat-eating leftist
. Greek opposition minister George Papandreou, son of former socialist Prime Minister Andreas Papandreou
, says some interesting things about the changing nature of representative democracy and the new fluidity of citizens' political and social identities.
Given our diminishing democracy in this country, it is refreshing to hear a politician say that individuals in society need to be empowered and that political leaders must listen to and trust individuals.
