Democracy or Freedom? - Demokratie oder Freiheit?

Democracy or Freedom

CrimethInc. ex-Workers’ Collective (english with german translation)
What’s the difference between democracy and anarchy? Today, the failings of the political system are obvious enough. But is the problem too little democracy, or too much?

From the Democratic People's Republic of Korea to David Graeber and Noam Chomsky, nearly everyone claims to be democratic. In this provocative presentation, we will discuss what ties all these different understandings of democracy together and what sets anarchism apart. Reviewing how the movement of the squares, Occupy, Nuit Debout, and other recent upheavals have been shaped by democratic rhetoric and practices, we will consider other ways to understand what we are doing together when we make decisions.

This discussion builds on a series exploring the anarchist critique of democracy, recently published by CrimethInc.
