I clicked on your link and right on top of your After the Revolution summer school banner are the words SOLD OUT. Does this mean you all got jobs with the Labour Party?

This part I'd like to know more about, regarding direct democracy:

Quote:
Who would get to vote on what, and on whose say-so? But actually the entire thing might be managed by the application of just three rules, backed by the same ethical principle that applies across every other sphere of socialist life: from each according to ability, to each according to need.

That's only two rules! What's the third?

If notes, a transcript, or recording are available of this lecture, please share, I'd like to see it.

Best of luck, I hope it goes well (with the summer school, not your selling out).

Very funny!

With the talk about democracy, the three suggested rules aren't in the blurb, and 'from each according to ability, to each according to need' is the principle which they come from. All will be revealed during the talk! We're planning on recording the event's talks (which will be on the SPGB website some time afterwards) and also 'livestreaming' them through the party's Discord server at the time.

Cool! Can you post a link on the thread when they're on the website?
