A New Politics for an Age of Crisis

Thursday 5th July 2018

1.00pm - 2.00pm

8 John Adam Street, London, WC2N 6EZ

 

 

A toxic ideology rules the world – of extreme competition and individualism. It misrepresents human nature, destroying hope and common purpose. Only a positive vision can replace it, a new story that re-engages people in politics and lights a path to a better world.

 

George Monbiot joins us at the RSA to explain how new findings in psychology, neuroscience and evolutionary biology cast human nature in a radically different light: as the supreme altruists and co-operators. He shows how we can build on these findings to create a new politics: a ‘politics of belonging’. Both democracy and economic life can be radically reorganized from the bottom up, enabling us to take back control and overthrow the forces that have thwarted our ambitions for a better society. His thrilling new vision provides the hope and clarity required to change the world.

 

Speaker: George Monbiot, journalist and author
