Because, having watched as, at least those in the West, have turned away from the principles offered by the Ten Commandments and instead adopted the principles of The Seven Deadly Sins (with great enthusiasm I might add) we seem to be losing our humanity. Social justice is fading away and social depression and hopelessness is its replacement. Why does it matter to me? I guess because I actually care about people and it makes me angry and sad to see us destroying, not just the planet, but ourselves. I guess it’s the “no man is an Island…” and “Do unto others” Once we forget those, what do we become – non humans? Who says “history never repeats” they were nuts !
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.
