Democracy is Obsolete

In this lecture, Peter Fein argues that traditional representative democracy is obsolete; today, regular Internet users are able to form “adhocracies” in which they use the power of technology to create change themselves.

Peter Fein is an Internet activist, computer programmer and media hacker who advocates for free speech and an open Internet. He works with Telecomix, an activist group which facilitates free communication around the world and has been called "tech support for the Arab Spring." He also sometimes acts as a liaison to the hacktivist group Anonymous.

What Tavaana Students Have to Say

The best aspect of this course was the true-to-life analysis of Iranian civil society, backed up by clear evidence and research. We were also introduced to workable, non-violent solutions for our civic issues.
