Paul Mason and Jesse Norman on a Revolutionary Defence of Humanity

In this week's episode of the Intelligence Squared podcast, the left-wing economics journalistPaul Mason was interviewed by Jesse Norman, the Conservative MP. They discussed Mason's vision for a utopian future laid out in his new bookClear Bright Future. According to Mason, the notion of humanity has been eroded as never before by the forces of populism, big data and untrammelled corporate power. But he still believes that we are capable of shaping our future, and offers a vision of humans as more than puppets, customers or cogs in a machine.

Old Testament vs New Testament: Passion, Poetry and the World’s Greatest Stories

Adam and Eve, Noah’s Ark, Moses and the Ten Commandments, the parting of the Red Sea. These are a few of the stories from the Old Testament. And then there’s the New Testament, with its account of the life of Jesus, the Good Samaritan, the raising of Lazarus and the feeding of the five thousand. Whatever our creed or background, these stories are embedded in our consciousness. They inform our everyday speech and much of our art, music and literature – from Cranach’s depiction of Adam and Eve to C.S. Lewis’s Narnia stories and Stormzy’s ‘Blinded By Your Grace’. Together the Old Testament and the New Testament make up the Holy Bible. The Old Testament contains the sacred scriptures of the Jewish faith, while Christianity draws on both Old and New Testaments, interpreting the New Testament as the fulfilmentof the prophecies of the Old. But which of these books is the greater? Arguing in favour of the Old Testament were novelistHoward Jacobson and writerAnne Atkins. Opposing them, arguing in favour of the New Testament, were theRev. Richard Coles, the Radio 4 presenter who went from pop star to priest; and theologianRobert Beckford. The debate was chaired by the award-winning comedian, author, screenwriter and director David Baddiel. For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy

Jeffrey Sachs on the End of American Supremacy

Last month we were joined onstage by the University of Columbia economics professorJeffrey Sachs, as he laid out his radical new vision for U.S. foreign policy. Instead of a world where America reigns as the sole superpower, Sachs argued for a new international system of equals, where America shares power and collaborates with former geopolitical rivals to solve today’s global crises. Sachs was in conversation with the BBC’s Chief International CorrespondentLyse Doucet. For information regarding your data privacy, visit acast.com/privacy
