[135] Utopia: Entertainment or Social Experiment?

Posted on

Today we are discussing research conducted on the British conspiracy drama TV show ‘Utopia’. What can conspiracy TV can teach us about ourselves? Can TV make us more political? Did people connect and identify with the moral and philosophical issues related to current affairs in the context of shadow governments, global capitalism, population control, vaccines, mind control, political regimes and the proposal of a scientific utopia? How did the show affect viewers’ stances on the fate of humanity in terms of being on the side of the resistance or the network? Join our live conversation with José Luis Urueta, research assistant in the Media Experiences project on Utopia.

Posted on

Has the prohibition of drugs been an effective measure to prevent their use? What are the ripple effects of legalizing and decriminalizing drugs? What have the consequences of the war on drugs been? If the supply is controlled and/or legalized, how can we regulate the demand for drugs? Can societies entirely get rid of drugs? Can drug awareness and prevention be the solution to end the war on drugs?
We will discuss this and more in our Live Hangout Alex Russell.

What are the economic trends leading to the necessity of implementing Basic Income programs around the world? Why is providing a Basic Income a social investment instead of an ‘extra expense’? What were the results of Basic Income Pilot program in Manitoba, Canada in the 1970’s? Basic income is a timely policy that stands at the intersection of ethics and economics – we will discuss this and more with Tim Ellis from Basic Income Canada Network.
