In a recent episode of BBC Radio 4’s The Public Philosopher, Michael Sandel invites young men and women from China, Japan and South Korea to discuss national guilt and historical reconciliation.

Thinking about Avril Lavigne’s 'Hello Kitty'

Posted on May 3, 2014 at 8:56pm 1 Comment

Has anybody watched the latest music video by Avril Lavigne? As some of you would be aware, ‘Hello Kitty’ has been widely accused of racism and cultural appropriation. I’ve followed the controversy with curiosity, not least because it’s a part of philosophers’ job to consider when it’s appropriate to use normative terms to blame someone or something.

Speech Police: The Global Struggle to Govern the Internet, with David Kaye

The original idea of the Internet was for it be a "free speech nirvana," but in 2019, the reality is quite different. Authoritarians spread disinformation and extremists incite hatred, often on the huge, U.S.-based platforms, YouTube, Facebook, and Twitter. David Kaye, UN special rapporteur on freedom of opinion & expression, details the different approaches to these issues in Europe and the United States and looks for solutions in this informed and important talk.

The Anti-Narrative

Among the electorate, especially since the 2016 election, there is a counter-narrative at play regarding the role of the U.S. in international affairs. This "anti-narrative" has two main planks. The first is an across-the-board distrust of the media. The second is the "death of expertise."

A number of efforts are being made to combat this corruption, however, among them, surprisingly, the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA).
