Is Britain collapsing in on itself?

I must admit to being flabbergasted at the events on Thursday with Britain being marginalised in Europe.Having read comments in various papers I am struck by the rising tide of intolerance and isolationism. This was just a few days after hearing about the poll that a considerable portion of the population were unsympathic to the plight of the unemployed.Should we be worried about a 1930s-style rise of the right wing? Perhaps right-wing movements like the EDL tacitly backed by some in…See More

Winners and Losers - Why many are in denial about potential economic collapse

Game Theory and the CynicAs I pointed out previously Game Theory accurately predicts how people will behave  when their fortunes are linked. Mostly they will work together but occassionally there is the impulse for one side to see if they can 'squeeze' the other for 'more'.One can also generalise about two types of player: the idealist who strives for win-win even when they are punished for it, and the cynic who believes everyone has an angle and will break ranks readily to chase a win-lose…See More

What brings you to NatCAN?
Right now is a crucial period for community activism in Great Britain, and its not all about resources (or the lack of them). Large scale outsourcing, top-down economic pressures and weakened democratic channels are challenging the notion that communities can have an effective role in determining the policies that affect them. This is the context that community activists in the 21st Century must grapple with.

Cake or Death?

The optimistic gene? If you are a community activist, you must have the gene. So how should you react in the face of mass extinction for the community sector? Cake or Death?

Public Service: Not dead, not forgotten

In my last blog posting, I claimed that politics was presently moving away from the notion of win-win, towards win-lose politics where competition would replace cooperation and that key players would seek two or maybe three rounds of compete-punish-counterpunish.

I made this prediction based on the recent behaviour of greedy bankers, public service cuts and the backlash of protesters, strikes and job loses. I still believe…

The Rift in Society: The Challenge for Community Action

As someone with a science background, I tend to come at problems in community action in a peculiar way, so please bear with me!

 

The Theory

A great deal of human behaviour can be described in terms of Game Theory. For those unfamiliar with the term, Game Theory, simply put states that individuals or groups will, in the first instance, tend to…

Have added three TED talks that particularly impress me, and (I hope) give grounds for optimism that public policy can be influenced for good.
