Another View of The Good Life

Following on the heels of yesterday's post, here's another way of looking at The Good Life.

Robert Neuwirth, author of Shadow Cities: A Billion Squatters, A New Urban World , who blogs at does a presentation about the amazing vibrancy of so-called slums: squatter communities. This will be of special interest for anarchists because there are real examples here of self-organizing, self-government. These are people taking their lives into their own collective hands - many because they have no choice, but others because they love these communities and the freedom they provide.
