BIG POLITICS: The Fate of the State

This week I have decided to do a mind map as the readings were full of all different ideas and it seemed the best way to present them all. In black I have written some of the ideas that came from the readings and in blue I have written all the questions that relate to these topics. These questions are things I think everyone should be asking themselves in order to be prepared for how technology is changing the future.

Interested in what I am talking about see these following sites and readings and tune in next week:
