Can you really combat terrorism when terrorism is whatever the state wants it to be?

Thinking about the past Communist vs Fascist dualism, and now the “good” vs “evil” i.e. the “West” vs “terrorism” dualism, and past and present governments using these terms as pawns for their own agenda, perhaps rendering them meaningless. Also thinking about the list of organisations deemed ‘terrorist’ orgs by Australia, e.g. the PKK Kurdish Workers Party who are fighting ISIS (therefore, terrorism) in Kobane

What's more important: answers, or questions? Are the ‘big’ questions - life, the universe, everything - more important than ‘little’ ones? Does a good question provoke debate or laughter, lead to certain answers or create reflective pause? Can it change laws, minds or lives? Are questions the best answers?

The Interrobang – a new festival from the Wheeler Centre – is looking for the best questions in the world.

Ask your questions and vote on others, then join us on 27 – 28 November for a feast of frequently unanswered questions – as we present your most controversial, revealing, funny and insightful ideas to a 25-strong Brains Trust of the world’s most inquisitive thinkers.

So pose your burning questions. We’ll build this festival on your curiosity, so brace yourself – and wonder hard.
