The Collapse

Short thesis

How institutions, trust and truth are annihilated by monopoly and corruption. The pandemic isn't the only disease that's annihilating our society: alongside of it, there is an epidemic of mistrust in institutions and a growth in conspiricism, a panic to save yourself and let everyone else fend on their own. Blaming Big Tech for the collapse in trust and commonly held truth is backwards: Big Tech's bigness is en effect, not a cause, of the corruption that made our institutions so untrustworthy.


You can look forward to an inspiring session with Cory Doctorow.


The session is powered by Sequencer Tour, which is a lighthouse project of Wunderbar Together. We thank the German Federal Foreign Office for making this possible.
