mountaintoseaDun Laoire Mountain to Sea festival

During Greece’s recent turbulent times te best source of unbiased news came from Channel 4 news and specifically Paul mason.  It is great to see Paul coming over to Ireland and being part of the Dun Laoire Mountian to Sea Festival – here’s what they have to say about it
“David Aaronovitch and Paul Mason are among the UK’s most incisive political journalists. They are also veteran leftist activists and in their new books they explore what socialism once was and what it may yet become in the new age of global markets and digital innovation.

In Party Animals, a memoir of early life among communists, Aaronovitch traces his memories of belief and action and the fate that lay in store for these ever hopeful, defiant and historically doomed people? He found himself studying the old secret service files, uncovering the unspoken shame and fears surrounding his own existence as a party animal and only then beginning to understand what had come before, both the obstinate heroism and the monstrous cowardice.

In Postcapitalism, Paul Mason asks whether today we are on the brink of a change so profound, that capitalism, the immensely complex system by which entire societies function, has reached its limits and is changing into something wholly new. At the heart of this change is information technology: a revolution that has the potential to destroy an economy based on markets and private ownership and to usher in a new kind socialism for our turbulent times.

Join Hugh Linehan, Culture Editor at The Irish Times for a wide ranging discussion with both authors.”
