Abstract

What is the problem with democracy? That is the question that Matthew Flinders seeks to answer at a forthcoming 8-minute TEDx talk. In seeking to answer the question, he argues that we may actually have too much democracy, in the sense that recent years have seen the creation of a kind of damaging “hyper democracy” – defined as being individualised, neo-liberal in character, and consumerist in character. He argues that instead, we should aim for a deeper and more meaningful kind of politics.
