In establishing an anarchic framework for understanding public space as a vision for radical democracy, the fourth chapter proceeds as a theoretical inquiry into how an agonistic public space might become the basis of emancipation. Emancipation here means a perpetual contestation of the alienating effects of capitalism and its contemporary expression as neoliberalism. The chapter establishes a framework for understanding democracy in nonviolent and anarchist terms by arguing for radical democracy through agonistic public places. Public places are of primary importance because democracy is meant to be inclusive to all. They are places where the politics of hierarchy, technocracy, international patrons, government appropriation, and co-optation by the modern aristocracy can be dismantled by a continuous dialogue of reformation.
