Dehumanisation is a prerequisite for some of the darkest things we’ve witnessed in our history. Slavery, genocides, torture, mass killings – just to name a few, and it’s one heavy list already. That’s why, we have to learn to notice it and to call it out.
The immigration policy in Lithuania seems to have taken a sharp turn towards limiting the rights of asylum seekers. Our humanity is being tested – and it’s very shameful to see we’re not doing well.
This episode is on the concept of Never Again and how we’ve…failed at it. How to analyse conflicts in the first place? What tools do we have?
It’s also on the small actions that can prevent other actions – even if it’s one person who decides not to go to a protest I describe in this episode. I think this is definitely where we can start.
I talk about political changes that took place in Argentina, Bolivia, and Belarus. Why the women in Argentina can breathe more easily, why the indigenous population of Bolivia is hopefully feeling safer, and why what the people in Belarus are engaging should inspire us all.
An authoritarian regime is being dismantled in Belarus: what is this process and how come it is turning people into heroes without their permission?
