I am curious about the extent tp which technology really helps unite different perspectives. How many in this group watch Fox News or take part in a right wing chat group? Most of us are overwhelmed by communications from within our own bubbles
Maya De Souza

Thanks Neal for an energising opening talk!

@Prashant - I expect that right wing grass roots movements see tech as at least as democratising as left wing ones do.
Maya De Souza

what do people think about PR as a means of reducing polarisation? any experience from other countries.
Prashant Vaze
51:38
An echo chamber is not a manifestation of democracy, it’s a cage
Prashant Vaze
57:26
but countries like Italy and Spain and high turn out have PR but unstable government. elections that deliver 5 Star
Marianne Sheehan

PR works well in New Zealand. As friends there say “party leaders/parties have to be grown up and talk to each other and work things out together” sounds more unifying and less divisive

This new style of politics - what do you think it should look like? Is it about being collaborative and long term? Is it about citizens assemblies and deliberative forums or is it something else?
Andy Roberts

I think that last point @maya was evidenced today with action against Rebecca Long-Bailey - more decisive than was expected, the commitment to anti-Semitism being made real and i think the large loss last election played to this
Patricia Patterson-Vanegas
01:42:00

Maya De Souza
