Episode 462 Royalty, Assimilation, Like Button

Liz Carmichael is an Oxford professor who spent the last four days in ceremonies observing Elizabeth’s 70 years on the throne. She was moved by it and shared her feelings – though Rachel Small did not see the monarchy the same way, but described them as exploitive of indigenous people, among other bad traits. We talk about the meaning of monarchs as standing outside of politics. Matt Legge thinks the attitudinal gap is generational, for he has no particular feeling for royalty, though his parents do. He holds conflict resolution workshops. For the video, audio podcast, transcript and public comments: https://tosavetheworld.ca/episode-462-royalty-assimilation-like-button.

You should do more to call attention to the Taiwanese project that Matt Legge mentions. It may be a way to counteract the harmful effects of people. using “like” buttons to create bubbles. Great idea. Thanks, Matt.
