Festival strand: Me, Me, Me Politics

The way we interpret the world today seems more and more focused on our experience as individuals rather than the broader needs of society. Universities seem to be more concerned about student experience than about the importance of education. Journalism often seems more concerned with the experience of the reporter than the facts at hand. Our ability to relate to society seems to be hamstrung by fear and loathing of others. This strand examines whether we have become too self-obsessed at the expense of our common interests.
