> In general I'd agree with that. The problem then is in the formulation - the how, who and why.



One suggested approach is explored here:

'Beyond Social Inclusion : Towards Cultural Democracy', by the Cultural Policy Collective, Scotland, 2004
http://www.variant.org.uk/20texts/CultDemo.txt

As previously posted of restrictions on public discourse along narrow ideological lines:

Rather than merely focusing on freedom of artistic self-expression, we need a broader intellectual and political debate over cultural rights. These are not reducible to artistic freedom. The threats to intellectual autonomy already upon us reflect the underlying logic of “single purpose government” rather than democratic values in cultural policy. The lack of parliamentary discussion about how to best pursue UNESCO treaty commitments towards a diversity of cultural expression (which include the diversity of political expression) has shown how far removed civic discourse on culture as democratic right remains. 

For comment on a coherent cultural policy drawn-up not for rentier systems of commerce but a cultural policy that fundamentally supports communicative acts; one written by those who in the public interest account for the way power is "exercised upon and through practices of mediated public communication", see Clive Barnett: 'Culture and democracy: media, space and representation' : http://cgj.sagepub.com/content/12/2/252.extract

All best,
Leigh
