DISINFORMATION AND CONSPIRACY: TACKLING THE CRISIS OF TRUST

A new #BattleFest recording from the Battle of Ideas festival 2021:

www.battleofideas.org.uk/session/disi…is-of-trust/

Why have disinformation and conspiracy theories become such mainstream preoccupations? What is a healthy distrust of officialdom, and when does it start to move away from reality? Have we become afraid of ourselves and our own ability to make judgements, and do we need a new series of official authorities to determine what’s real and what’s not? Or is the collapse in trust – and in each other – a matter for us all to take up?

Listen to Alastair Donald, Dr Sean Lang, Dr Tim Black, Konstantin Kisin and William Clouston discuss.
