WHY LIBERALISM WILL SAVE US
Thinking for yourself in a populist world.
Across the world, the authoritarian right is taking control, and launching an all-out assault on liberal values. How can we fight back?
In his book, “How to Be a Liberal” (“a rallying cry for those who still believe in freedom and reason”), political commentator and journalist Ian Dunt charts the story of liberalism: an epic narrative which stretches from the battlefields of the English Civil War and the French Revolution to the 2008 financial crash, Brexit, Donald Trump and Covid-19.
Join Ian as he makes a welcome return to Stroud Book Festival to debate the principles and practices of liberalism, in the belief that liberal ideas remain our most powerful weapon in “shattering the tiny lies of populists”.
