Technology, Climate, Justice and Rights: Can We Get The Whole World To Agree On Any Of Them?
It’s easy to feel a sense of powerlessness when every morning we’re greeted with bleak news of climate catastrophe, grave social injustice, political inaction and senseless violence. So how can we muster the courage to forge a new path and turn things around? Is it still possible to make the world a better place? A.C. Grayling shares his ideas on how to make a better world.
