In this session of "Building Utopia" we discuss the strategy for how to realize a utopian vision. The world does not lack for proposals to replace patriarchy. History chronicles many people who have designed an egalitarian model for society founded on the equitable sharing of labor and the sustainable use of resources. But history is short on people who have a plan to bring it off, a strategy of implementation, a way to realize the vision and make it happen. "Building Utopia" takes up this challenge. Jeff Mincey will give a brief opening presentation and then facilitate a discussion. Sponsored by: Building Utopia.
