We ask Gavin Newsom, Lieutenant Governor of California, “What solution excites you the most?”
During the large Occupy Education events inside the state capitol building in Sacramento on March 5, 2012.
I think the most exciting thing is real civic engagement and civic participation. And I think the tools of technology are going to aid and advance those voices in a dramatic way, and scale them. I think it’s the most dynamic and extraordinary thing that will happen in our lifetime…and it’s happening NOW.
And we saw that amplified, obviously, in the Middle East. But I think increasingly you’re going to see that not just with dictatorships overseas, but in terms of the limited engagement that exists here in America. I think people are going to have to wake up that it’s a new day and a new dawn, and technology is going to create a framework where you can’t hide, and you can’t run. And you’d better engage and listen and procure a framework of solution or you’re not going to be around a lot in terms of, you know, political life.
So I think that’s the most extraordinary thing that is happening.
