“Never let the future disturb you. You will meet it, if you have to, with the same weapons of reason which today arm you against the present.”
The final issue: No. 8 of the most excellent 'Weapons of Reason' series has been announced and it is on the theme of CONFLICT.
War has always been an essential tool of statecraft and empire building — a necessary means to acquire natural and human resources and expand territory. As a result, humanity is extremely adept at making excuses for it, using simple and effective narratives as an incitement to take up arms and lay down lives. But what use are these old tricks in a progressively globalised world, in which trade, travel and technology connect us more than ever before? War, what is it good for?
There are also plans for a special book which will feature updated versions of articles from all 8 issues in the series.
