Description:

The Demos organization publishes thoughtful pieces of commentary and research on a variety of topics, including civics, governance, public space, and other related matters. Richard Reeves and Philip Collins authored this 71-page paper, and in it they consider the nature of power and control, and more specifically, the relationship between the people and government. The work was published in May 2009, and is divided into three chapters: "Independence", "Capability", and "Power". The report concludes with a series of notes and references. Perhaps Reeves and Collins say it best when they note, "The 'good society' is not a perfect shape to be carved by the elite out of the crooked timber of humanity. It is created by independent, capable people charting their own course through life."
