I thought the small group on here who enjoy listening to the thinking of this man, might find this eleven month old interview enlightening. It seems very relevant for the moment to me.
He talks about the changes populism has made, producing "an incredibly argumentative age", where something has completely altered the way we argue making it devisive, rather than leaving us with understanding and empathy.
He talks about how people, in Parliament and in society no longer talk "to each other", which brings us to headline grabbing performances for later broadcast or to tweet out to followers. He discusses the internets rewards for the angry and punishment for the subtle.
As always he passes on some deep thinking in an entirely understandable way.
Hope some will enjoy visiting or revisiting this and that it starts a "subtle" discussion.
