Bendigo Writers Festival

Event Date: 9 August 2019
Author / Presenters: Jennifer Clement, Richard Cooke, AC Grayling, Clare Wright, Nevo Zisin

Rule by the people has not yet actually meant what it says, and despite the hand-on-heart nationalism that claims democracy as the best of all possible systems, history has shown that "people" means different things, according to who is eyeing off the power. Is it still the best possible system? What is threatening it? Who, now, are "the people" and who best represents them? Nevo Zisin hosts Jennifer Clement, Richard Cooke, AC Grayling and Clare Wright, for a discussion about people and power.
