Brian Eno on 'Why I come to the Campfire'.
We launch our crowdfunding campaign 'Fire In The Belly' in May 2019.
We're looking at increasing understanding the machinery of how human communities work...
Brains Eno says: “I’m here at Campfire Convention. I’ve had a great time. I think people will leave this thing with some sense of optimism that first of all they’re not alone in their discontent with the way things are running. I’ve met a lot of people here who are doing specific and very exciting projects that really are to do with re-thinking democracy and understanding that democracy means ruled by the community. The thing we have now is a sort of abstraction of democracy, a fake version of it. There are a lot of people here who are trying to think “what would political engagement mean? What does it look like? Does it revolve around parties or particular politicians or is it about trying to understand how the machinery of human communities works and I think a lot of people are starting to think about that latter question now."
