Chapter 15: Circus and Carnival

Religion, politics, and economics all appear to be a circus of action. Everyone wants our attention, our money, and for us to jump on their bandwagon. In this chapter, the carnival is used as a motif of interactivity and freedom, which breaks away from the three-ring circus advertising for our attention and allegiance. Can you imagine politics and religion in an interactive space with everyone holding equal value? I acknowledge that this is in many ways idealistic, but can you picture it? If so, what tiny steps could each of us take to move us toward this goal?
