Round Table Circle – On Zoom

Tuesday 19 October at 10.30am for 11.00am
Speaker: The Honourable Dr Barry Jones
Subject: How political allegiances shift in liberal
democracies
Barry Jones will address the reasons behind these shifts
which he sees as being based not on economic issues
but on race, gender, religion and on attitudes modernity
and globalism. The digital age, contrary to expectations,
has enabled a retreat from reason, a ‘post truth’ era, with
opinion preferred over evidence. With’ retail politics’,
parties have become tiny, secret, self-serving and tribal.
He argues that if citizens refuse to engage in politics,
the situation must deteriorate – as the climate change
debacle demonstrates. Please book via the Club website

Convenors: Kathy Sanders and Helen Murray
