    Episode 42 - Against Pride and Prejudice - A European Reading List

    Episode 42 - Against Pride and Prejudice - A European Reading List

    It is a truth universally acknowledged, that a society in possession of democracy must be in want of a common understanding of reality.

    European democracies are under stress. Economic hardship, a seemingly crumbling global order and technology racing far ahead of regulation are just some of the challenges that their citizens and leaders have to face. Solutions need to be the product of wide-ranging and honest conversations, but in order to have those, the conversing parties need to see the world in a fundamentally similar way. This episode offers listeners three books that can contribute to societies being on the same page (pun intended) when it comes to the challenges we all face. Global heating, populism or big tech, they all seem overwhelming. But with patience and hard work they can be conquered, one page at a time.
