Our contempt for weakness and the roots of fascism

The Tällberg Foundation/Nextwork AB, in cooperation with the Living History Forum is inviting 25 people to a conversation about the strength and health of democratic values, both at national and international levels. The workshop will ask questions about recent developments and discuss strategies to counteract nationalism and tribalism which are on the rise.

The paradox of the situation is that by means of technology and markets, we – citizens and consumers – are rapidly giving rise to a globalized world of tightening interdependence. However, politically and constitutionally we are opting for a world where the present and the future is managed on a national or local level. The global and local visions are in conflict with one another, as exemplified in local elections.

The conversations will start in the afternoon of Sep 9, closing on Sep 10 at noon at Forum för Levande Historia, Gamla Stan, Stockholm. Participation is limited to 25 persons.
