#181 – Rutger Bregman – Humankind: Are We Good Or Evil?

Listen on Apple Podcasts, Spotify or stream below.

Rutger Bregman is a historian & an author.

It’s a common-held view of humanity that humans are adversarial. Shaven chimps competing with each other for resources, held together by a veneer of politeness & society.

Rutger disagrees and suggests that deep down humans might actually be quite nice. Expect to learn why soldiers don’t fire their weapons in war, what happens when the real world Lord Of The Flies happens, how bombing a city doesn’t weaken the inhabitants and much more…
