Jamie Bartlett – Radicals

Jamie Bartlett is a journalist, author and television presenter whose last book ”The Dark Net: Inside the Digital Underworld” introduced us to the disturbing corners of the dark web. There he became friends with trolls, hackers, drug dealers, pornographers, political extremists, crypto-anarchists and vigilantes. His new book “Radicals” takes us into the minds of people who dare to be different: the innovators, disruptors, idealists and extremists whose secretive and influential movements include: techno-futurists questing for immortality, far-right groups looking to close borders, militant environmentalists, autonomous cooperatives, and psychedelic pioneers.

Social democrats are by nature the new extremist & this guest pulls his punches. I felt like slapping him…….we are facing a paradigm shift in consciousness, a new reality is being birthed. We must disengage, denying ‘the powers that were’ our energy by letting go of fear. Nothing has changed for over 2000 years of conventional protest. Wake up.
