Zombification of Europe
Clearly, zombification is a process that works at the psychological level, but what if it is also symptomatic of a far broader malaise indicative of neoliberalism? Daniel Margrain draws on the thoughts and ideas of the economist, Matthias Weik to explain how this all fits together.
Do you want more drums of war?
Today, even after so many official lies when we speak about reasons to go to war it seems that there must be total public compliance. How do we resist a militarised, herd mentality that will lead to bigger geopolitical conflicts that could end in mutually assured destruction?
Reheating The Cold War
Is this continual talk of the New Cold War legitimate or could Western politicians be peddling an old idea so to distract their citizens from thinking about their increasingly limited freedoms and diminishing standards of living?
License to be bad
Why are so many people rewarded for exploiting society? Could it be that our overall economic incentives are skewed? What if the way our economics have evolved now punishes those who want to do what’s right and rewards those who do wrong?

When it comes to the natural world our human superiority complex prevents us really connecting with the very thing that sustains us. Like the Amazon, the irony burns. So we need a rethink.
What’s So Great About “Free Trade”?
Those leading the anti-EU, pro-Brexit charge want Britain to sign “free trade” deals with the US and growing economies. What they don’t tell you is that the very EU policies they claim to oppose are cut-and-paste into “free trade” deals outside the EU. Tim Coles explains that “free trade”, EU or non-EU, is bad for working people: and we have NAFTA as a historical model to prove it.

The rise of China and other emerging economies isn’t a new phenomenon. So the tectonic plates of trade shift and global economic power twists and turns. Dr. Lee Jones and Mitch Feierstein met up with Renegade Inc. to consider what the transition from a unipolar western hegemony to an interconnected multipolar world really looks like.
Renegade Inc. caught up with the comedian Shane Mauss to find out what he thinks about the shift towards a new era of psychedelic-assisted therapy and if a change in attitude towards psychedelics can begin to address the escalating mental health issues of our increasingly neurotic world.
