‘One of the most acute and perceptive analysts of the furtive growth of fascism’ – Philip Pullman
Many of us felt it before but 2020 was the year it became undeniable: the status quo is not working. Political discontent is widespread – and for good reason. The pandemic has exposed the fragility of our economies. Wildfires in Australia and California gave us a glimpse into the future if we do not confront the climate crisis. And rioters, including white supremacists, this month took over the very seat of representative government in the US.
So what can we do now to change course? On May 13 award-winning political commentator Ece Temelkuran comes to Intelligence Squared to lay out a new political manifesto for the post-pandemic world. Drawing from her new book Together: 10 Choices for a Better Now, she will explain why we must choose fear over comfort and political activism over social media outrage. And she will encourage us to embrace the radical idea that humanity can come together to solve its collective problems.
Book bundles include one ticket for the online debate, plus a copy of Ece Temelkuran’s book Together: 10 Choices For A Better Now with free UK P&P. Books will be posted within 1-2 weeks of the event finishing. Click here to purchase a book bundle.
