Social Europe is co-hosting “Start Worrying, Details to Follow”, a podcast presented by Karin Pettersson from Sweden’s Aftonbladet and Georg Diez from Der Spiegel in Germany. Each episode is recorded with a new distinguished guest to put a unique perspective on current political issues.
We live in strange times. Rarely have the transformations been so abrupt, the changes to societies, economies and the general perception of the self so disruptive. There is an explosion of inequality, the ecological disaster is creating conflicts on a global scale, technology is rewiring the way we work, live and understand the difference between man and machine. Democracy is under attack, both by capitalism and authoritarianism.
What are the deeper reasons, what are the deeper changes? And, most importantly, where are the new ideas? This is where we start. There are people who have answers. There are thinkers who have a vision of the good life for the 21st century, there are even politicians who are able to re-imagine democracy. These are the people we look for, want to talk to. This is a podcasts for new ideas in democratic thinking. Or, with a little bow to Karl Marx: Others describe, we deliver.
