Which side are you on?

What is your interest in high & low?
The old classes of the industrial society vanish, new social dividing lines emerge: between those who benefit from globalization and digitization and those who feel overstrained and left behind. Right-wing, backward-looking agitators exarcerbate the contrasts between the milieus, an ignorant economic elite in a different way as well . How can we stabilize democracy in these times? Is it just „when they go low, we go high“? Do we need alternative ways? What role do art and culture play in this?
