About the Book: 

The ultimate question explored in this book – a question we all must all ask ourselves – is this: Will our global society repurpose democracy into practices that create a creature of hope: empowered democracy by and with a diverse polis?  Or, will we allow the global elite to repurpose our democratic language into monsters of terror: an agenda that uses the polis crafted at the hands of a powerful few treating people as human capital (the monster let loose)?

This book offers its readers (which should include anyone interested in the future of a democratic world) ways to think about repurposing traditional frameworks of democracy, curriculum, and education that can, and must be, community-driven, open-ended, messy, and indeterminate processes of agency and empowerment for us all. This book informs the reader that there’s a new freedom in our collective capacity to imagine how we can repurpose things: fitting together, working together, each of us a facet in a new purpose – each has a part to play in building a new creative design for educating our children and for the life we seek to build. We will build ourselves as self-determined, cooperative fragments – rearranging the bigger picture. Because, if we can change perception, we can change reality.
