Speech to the RSA with Professor Amitai Etzioni

Fantastic event last night at the Royal Society of Arts, where I and renowned American communitarian philosopher Amitai Etzioni, spoke together on the theme of community.
Professor Etzioni is the leading exponent of communitarianism, and was here to help me think through some of the issues around using public service reform to strengthen our sense of community and responsibility. Having admired his work for many years, it was a privilege to meet him yesterday, and to engage with him and an the audience at the RSA. You can read my speech – which addressed the question ‘Do People Need Community Anymore?’ – here. And you can listen to an audio recording of the event here – http://tiny.cc/Ajk6L
