In this Issue:
As we face down a constant stream of information, the pressure to decide what to believe or what to care about has radicalised the seemingly simple act of choosing. If you think about it like this, anything can be considered radical. In this fourth issue, we dive into the hyper-polarisation of our times. As we continue to make our choices, we are forced into camps that disregard any shards of truth that might lie within other positions. What’s happened to original thought and compromise?
In Issue Four, we explore radical ideas, technologies and viewpoints in hopes of understanding. We can’t shy away from views or ideas that seem extreme, only by virtue of being different than our own. So we face the future head-on, take stock and work our way forward. The journey takes us from right-wing extremism to Kundalini yoga, and from gene drives to historical eccentrics. Maybe we can find some answers somewhere in between.
In this issue:
