BBC Newsnight’s Economics Editor Paul Mason talks to Penny Red blogger & New Statesman writer Laurie Penny, on an issue that’s been debated in Stoke Newington since the 17th Century: dissent. Mason’s updated best-seller Why It’s (Still) Kicking Off Everywhere: The New Global Revolutions looks at the wave of revolt and revolution sweeping the planet, from Athens and the Arab Spring to Quebec and the UK. He and Penny discuss how social networking, economic crisis and a new political consciousness have come together to ignite a new generation of radicals and provide some insight and anecdotes into the future of global revolt.
