[Video]: David Simon’s Dangerous Ideas

A local gem you may have missed: at The 2013 Festival of Dangerous Ideas, David Simon speaking at the Sydney Opera House David Simon (showrunner of The Wire and creator of the miniseries The Corner, author of Homicide: A Year on the Killing Streets). As much a keen-eyed social scientist as he is a gifted storyteller, Simon takes the podium to talk about the hidden realities of a capitalistic civilization; how our current state of polarised political deadlock is a consequence of historical forces; and how America is going through a nation-wide social upheaval without precedence.
