Taking a humane and egalitarian liberalism as his starting point, Daniel Chandler builds a careful and ultimately irresistible case for a progressive agenda that would fundamentally reshape our societies for the better.
Imagine: you are designing a society, but you don’t know who you’ll be within it – rich or poor, man or woman, gay or straight. What would you want that society to look like? This is the revolutionary thought experiment proposed by the twentieth century political philosopher, John Rawls. Chandler shows how we can protect free speech and transcend the culture wars; get money out of politics; and create an economy where everyone has the chance to fulfil their potential, where prosperity is widely shared and which operates within the limits of our finite planet.
