Phillip Blond, author of Red Tory, is a key architect of the U.K.'s Big Society project. Blond's ResPublica think tank has ridden to sudden prominence with radical solutions aimed at restoring civil society, remoralizing the markplace and recapitalizing the poor. Their ideas make up a substantial part of the U.K.'s new Localism Bill, now close to passage. Blond will apply lessons from the recent U.K. riots to our American political scene.
