This TED Talk by Dave Meslin exposes seven parts of the the Social Matrix that create barriers to active participation, and challenges us to dismantle these barriers.
- City Hall - Intentional Exclusion via Communications
- Public Space - Price tag for freedom of expression, no unprofitable speech
- Media - Distraction and Diversion, Discourages Engagement via neglect
- Heroes - Chosen Heroes, voluntary, inglorious, collective, imperfect, uninvited
- Political Parties - Uninspiring, uncreative, regurgitating, uncreative, exclusive
- Charitable Status - no advocacy, no politics
- Elections - Votes don't count
