Purcell’s democratic delight

Mark Purcell:

Defending the welfare state, or even trying to reinvigorate it, is a perfectly understandable way to respond to neoliberalism and austerity…. However,  I want to argue that we can aim at more…we can aspire to and achieve a much more democratic form of life (p. 10)

From his new book The Deep-Down Delight of Democracy. Currently reading this, but a good beginning.
