Anne Applebaum: Democracy Under Siege

‘Given the right conditions, any society can turn against democracy. Indeed, if history is anything to go by, all of our societies eventually will.’ Pulitzer Prize-winning writer Anne Applebaum’s bleak prognosis for liberal democracy lies at the heart of her intriguing new book, Twilight of Democracy, which blends deeply-felt memoir with cool political analysis.

Applebaum’s personal approach carries weight because she’s witnessed the rise and fall of democratic sentiment first hand in her adopted Poland. A staff writer for the Atlantic, she is also deeply connected to the US and British political scenes. From the recently-converted Post-Communist states in Eastern Europe to those bastions of western liberal democracy, Britain and the USA, Applebaum analyses the rise of a nativist, authoritarian leadership style. Join her for this event, as she discusses the fractured present and tenuous future of liberal democracy with BBC special correspondent Allan Little. Part of the 2020 Edinburgh International Book Festival Online.

While I constantly try to find the positives in every place I visit, there are few places that I just simply didn't enjoy.

The country of Brunei is one of them.

I went to Brunei back in 2014, three years before I made videos, but my negative experiences in the country have stuck in my mind ever since. That, combined with its absurd human rights laws such as stoning to death LGBT members, I was pushed to make this video.

Have you ever visited any countries that you didn't enjoy? Please share below, I'm curious to know.

TechChill 2018: Technology is the new Democracy

Viola Llewellyn, Co-founder & President at Ovamba Solutions, on technology as the new Democracy.

Countries, people, systems & businesses evolve and change. It used to be a slow process, but because of technology change comes faster every day. Some things get lost in that change, such as the people, the conceptions, the misconceptions and the narrative of the people involved in these changes. Africa and the Baltics are a lot more alike than you would think. Technology makes the world so much smaller and accessible and casts a spotlight in regions such as the African continent, the Baltics, Nordic States, parts of Asia etc. What is the new story here and how does Technology play a role in the growth of new industries, diversity, culture, business, finance, and people. This is a story of How we can impact the globe and survive the change in the new DEMOCRACY known as TECHNOLOGY?
