How To Lose A Country: The New Political Ice Age

When did we decide that we no longer need to watch news? We no longer have to watch these dis­turb­ing images? That’s why I’m writ­ing a book. I’m think­ing about these issues.

Political Culture, Donald Trump and Education

Donald Trump is not an American phe­nom­e­non, sole­ly an American phe­nom­e­non. We see Trumps emerg­ing all across the West, all across Europe—Western Europe and Eastern Europe. And they are repeat­ing them­selves in very sim­i­lar ways.

Sidney Blumenthal on the Crisis of Democracy

There’s always been this strain, par­tic­u­lar­ly in American pol­i­tics, a skep­ti­cism about politi­cians. We’re in one of these peri­ods where there is such skep­ti­cism, but it runs deep­er.

The Fate of Civil Liberties in National Crises

The sys­tem I would want is I would want an assur­ance that if some extra­or­di­nary mea­sure has to be put in place tem­porar­i­ly to deal with a tem­po­rary cri­sis, that the word tem­po­rary” will in fact con­tin­ue to apply. And I will add that this is a moment when I real­ly wish we had a func­tion­ing Congress.

Post-Enlightenment, Media, and Democracy

I think this is the end of the news. Not the end of jour­nal­ism, end of news. And I think the whole dis­cus­sion about busi­ness mod­els, or qual­i­ty, or trust, or ethics are sec­ondary to what is the real prob­lem, which is a cul­tur­al prob­lem and a social prob­lem.

World Economic Forum Annual Meeting 2020 Special Address by Donald Trump

We’ve regained our stride, we dis­cov­ered our spir­it, and reawak­ened the pow­er­ful machin­ery of American enter­prise. America’s thriv­ing, America’s flour­ish­ing, and yes, America is win­ning again like nev­er before.

World Economic Forum Annual Meeting 2018 Special Address by Donald Trump

Like all nations rep­re­sent­ed at this great forum, America hopes for a future in which every­one can pros­per, and every child can grow up free from vio­lence, pover­ty, and fear. Over the past year, we have made extra­or­di­nary strides in the US. We’re lift­ing up for­got­ten com­mu­ni­ties, cre­at­ing excit­ing new oppor­tu­ni­ties, and help­ing every American find their path to the American Dream.

Deducing the Cognitive Basis of Attempting to Influence Others

In the course of Donald Trump’s rise to pow­er, peo­ple have repeat­ed­ly been ask­ing, Why did he tweet that? What was he think­ing about?” Our fas­ci­na­tion with his men­tal states high­lights a very impor­tant ques­tion for us: What hap­pens in our minds and brains when we try to influ­ence oth­ers?

Design for Diplomacy: Breaking Down Cultural Divides

We as design­ers have an abil­i­ty to pro­vide per­spec­tive, to bring focus, and to share the tools that we use on a dai­ly basis to align a group of dis­parate voic­es for a cause that is greater than our own.

Virtual Futures Podcast #7: Trust Shift, with Rachel Botsman

We rarely think about the link between trust and progress and inno­va­tion, and how soci­eties move for­ward. But when you start to think of it like that, you real­ize that trust is actu­al­ly the key com­po­nent not just for com­pa­nies but any orga­ni­za­tion that wants human beings to try new things.
