Macpherson // The Real World of Democracy

I heard about this via Ursula Franklin’s Massey lecture, The Real World of Technology.

Macpherson’s lectures feel a little ra-ra capitalism at points, but I’m not sure I have heard / read anything else that does quite so cut and dry a comparison of alternative “versions” of democracy (Western liberal democracy vs USSR style command socialism) as this.

You can listen to the lectures here or get on kindle.
