How is it that we engage with the market as sovereign individuals and become addicted? How manipulated are we by those selling to us, as compared to making choices? How is our public space and private activity being monetised? All in pursuit of supposed greater benefit for us all? Come along, and enjoy the chance to discuss these issues and more, from a humanist perspective.

Bart won’t be there in person but we will enjoy his inspirational talks on YouTube, with Humanist House’s Wi-Fi connection.
