Tim Marshall : Divided
Saturday 1 June at 11:00am
The 21st century has seen walls go up across the world with the concrete mixed and laid at such a pace most of us haven’t even noticed. We’re in a new era of tribalism – money, race, religion, politics divide us; social media amplifies those divisions. Trump’s wall says as much about America’s divided past as it does its future. The Great Firewall of China separates ‘us’ from ‘them’. In Europe, the explosive combination of politics and migration threatens liberal democracy itself. Tim delves into our past and our present to reveal the fault lines shaping our world, and the emerging technologies which could divide us further, or help bring us closer together.
