`A powerful and realistic message of hope for the future' - Professor John Quiggin, University of Queensland

We are in the middle of the greatest technological revolution in history. Its epicentre lies in Silicon Valley, but its impacts are felt in all corners of the earth. It could give all of us a better quality of life and new, more cooperative ways of living. Or it could further entrench inequality, with even more of the world's wealth in the hands of a few. This book offers a bold vision for ensuring that we achieve the former. A world that is fairer, less violent and most radical of all, more joyous.

Tim Dunlop spells out his ideas for reclaiming common ground systematically, arguing the case for more public ownership of essential assets, more public space, a transparent media system, and an education that prepares us for the future, not the past. His vision for democracy and society is practical and inspiring, based on ideas about what we are doing well and what we must do better. His is a vision for handing political power back to we-the-people so that we can stop playing defence and start changing the ground on which decisions about our lives are made.

Welcome to the future of everything....
