CONCLUSIONS: Beyond Democracy
Another significant difference between Third World Majority's work and my own circulates around process, interaction, and control within this space. The invitation by Kara Keeling and Thenmozhi Sounararajan to author a Dialogue gives me, and the other authors so invited, maximum control and voice within this space (as much as once had the authors and mediamakers we study from and interact with here), but this space itself is not radically open to others’ similar interventions. Why, we might want to consider? What would that level of access and interaction allow, and what might it close down?
Finally, I found little writing in this publication about the ideals, processes, and vocabulary of "democracy," and I believe that this absence serves as a shining testament to the more radical political histories and theories that ground this project's output. Media Justice Now!
