Welcome to Episode 4 of the Hope Rising. In this episode, we hear from 3 very different people about how they relate to political power.
Lately, I’ve been wondering about power. I’ve always been confused by politics. Even in a democratic system, where you have a right to vote, the simple act of voting in a way feels like you are handing over your power to someone else, usually in a more privileged position than you, to rule the next few years of your life. Isn’t that a bit weird? Isn’t that a bit hopeless? Let’s hear from Helgi, an Icelandic pirate turned MP, Olivia, a documentary maker turned canvasser, and Darren, a young leader aiming for Parliament about the ways they relate to political power.
