A talk on power and revolution at Port Elliot Festival in Cornwall

Here’s a talk I gave at the wonderful Port Eliot Festival in Cornwall, in July (2019), about power, hierarchy, and egalitarianism. I try to offer an insight into a time before the domestication of plants and animals for food and the very different way of being that is our shared ancestry. I talk about vast groups of people who maintained equality and balance within their societies and the tools they use to do so. It is also an offering of how such ways of being came about in the first place, and what we can learn from the revolution that knew how to diffuse power and bring about equality. I hope you enjoy it x
