“Just remember that what you’re seeing and what you’re reading is not happening,” said the President of the United States this week to a group of veterans.

7/3/2018
More
When liberal politicians suggest we look for policy-making inspiration from social democracies in Europe, the automatic reaction from some corners of the political scene is something like “well, then, move to Sweden!” or “Love it or leave it!” There is no reason that we can’t take lessons from other systems in our collective pursuit of … Continue reading If The Dutch Ruled The World (re-broadcast) → The post If The Dutch Ruled The World (re-broadcast) appeared first on Sea Change Radio.

More
Futurists, environmentalists and planners alike generally believe that humans living in more densely populated areas has benefits for the earth – city-living is just a much more efficient use of the planet’s resources. But cities also expose a society’s inequality. Some of the world’s wealthiest cities are plagued by abundant homelessness and have deep pockets … Continue reading Rafael Mandelman: Inner City Blues → The post Rafael Mandelman: Inner City Blues appeared first on Sea Change...
