As a busy year draws to a close we want to look back at those people who’ve inspired and enlightened us in 2017. Coming up this week is the first of two shows we take a whistle-stop tour around the thinkers, writers, doers and Renegade types we met during 2017. Tune into Renegade Inc on RTUK, on Monday the 25th of December at 7.30am, 1.30pm, and 6.30pm, or stay glued to the website for upcoming episodes.
Author of Chasing the Scream, Johann Hari deconstructs the War on Drugs and the myth that decriminalising drugs will worsen already abhorrent circumstances. Everything we know about drug addiction is wrong – so how can we think differently about a solution to this 100-year problem?
In this clip from our Meet the Renegades series, Mark Earls unwinds human rationality and the historic development of human culture as being dependent on relying on others. He delves deeper into the culture portrayed in the UK, the desire for an independent heroic sense of individualism, which is impossible to achieve, as virtually everything we do has been taught or developed through the influence of someone.
In our first episode of Meet the Renegades Season 2, we speak with Joris Luyendijk – Dutch journalist and author. After writing a number of best selling books he believes we need a better system not better bankers; better government; better laws; better incentives and better culture.
