About this talk
Many institutions we take for granted are designed from a basis of mistrust. Skip school too often? Go to jail. Run that red light, even when nobody is around for blocks? Ticket.
Movements around the world are finding new ways, flipping the model, building practices and institutions based on the initial gesture of trust. Building on trust, we are rediscovering how to be citizens in civilization together. The effects of this shift will catalyze every sector of human activity, a process we’ve only just begun.
