Cultural Equivalent of Climate Change

“I believe that we are undergoing the cultural equivalent of climate change, and only when we realise this will we understand the strange things that have been happening in the twenty-first century in the realms of politics and economics, the deterioration of public standards of truth and civil debate, and the threat to freedom of speech at British and American universities. It also underlies more personal phenomena like loneliness, depression and drug abuse. All these things are related. If we see this, we will already have taken the first step to a solution.”
