"Humankind ends by imagining a society that gives people more freedom to learn, work and govern themselves, instead of treating them as selfish profit-maximisers who require surveillance by teachers, managers and rulers." @FT's lunch with @rcbregman: https://t.co/EdvW8Qc2fJ
One of the great takes on journalism here by the historian @rcbregman "Most journalists have to go through a whole merry-go-round, then at 50 they might get to be ‘editor-at-large’ and do fun things. But by then many ideas are anchored in your brain" https://t.co/SoLVPEF08u
@randylacey2 @rcbregman As the book says “ cynicism is just another word for laziness”. I’d encourage you to read it. Think of it perhaps, as a favour to me. In return, I’ll owe you a favour. Though I expect you’ll come to the realisation during the reading, that the encouragement was the favour.

If you only read one book this year make it this one. (And I’m including my own in that which hopefully shows the strength of my advocacy 📚📚📚📚) https://t.co/WNajiFvnJ0
Not many new books have made it into the Sunday Times nonfiction bestsellers recently - people seem to be going with what they know - but one exception is Rutger Bregman's optimistic history of man, Humankind, in at No 2 for this coming weekend.
Wow. My new book HUMANKIND has just come in at #2 in the UK (after @charliemackesy's beautiful and unbeatable picture book). Feel so happy and grateful 🥳 Can't be a coincidence that both books are about the good in humanity, and the importance of hope. Times are changing. https://t.co/y2MzzmY8kz
In this “look at me” world it’s reinvigorating to land on the “look at us” writings of @rcbregman. Historian? Psychologist?Anthropologist? Philosopher? Socio-economist? All of the above. There’s a solution to all the craziness...You. Us. Gnothi Seauton... Read Humankind
"When elites think about human nature, they look in the mirror and they assume that other people are as selfish as they are. But that's not the case". Historian and author Rutger Bregman says crises throughout history prove "most people are pretty decent". https://t.co/hUx92n5yWo
Well worth a listen to the latest podcast. Rutger Bregman on how power corrupts politicians but most of us ordinary people are better than the cynics would have you believe. https://t.co/tLIhAzfE1o
