Join Dave Meslin at the downtown branch of the Barrie Public Library for a reading from his new book, Teardown.
From the website:
"Our democracy is a train wreck. Our elections feel hollow, our legislatures toxic. Fierce partisanship, centralized power, distorted election results and rigged systems all contribute to our growing cynicism. Voters are increasingly turning towards the angriest candidates, or simply tuning out completely and staying at home.
Teardown is not an aggregation of complaints—it’s a collection of solutions aimed at bringing our democratic ecosystem to life, not only in our legislatures but also in our daily lives. It’s a call for a revolution against our own cynicism and against a spiritually carcinogenic system that has crushed our voice. Dave Meslin's TED talk offered a thorough diagnosis. Teardown offers the remedies."
Teardown expands on ideas expressed in Dave's TEDTalk.
