David Simon talks sense as always

Was privileged last night to see writer and TV creator David Simon at the Festival of Dangerous ideas at the Opera House. Somehow we even managed to get in the second row:

David Simon at Festival of Dangerous Ideas

 

He was just metres away from us, and he spoke for an hour on a variety of topics around politics, the drug wars, democracy and the future of capitalism. Big ideas, certainly, but they didn’t feel dangerous, in as much as the audience seemed to be agreeing with what he said! So there’s probably hope for us yet…

Smart man, creative ideas, can’t wait to see what he does next.
