An inquiry into dissent and how it might save the world
Lawyer and author William Kaplan argues that people need to listen more often to unconventional voices rather than relying on conventional wisdom. He joins ‘The Agenda’ to discuss his book, “Why Dissent Matters: Because Some People See Things the Rest of Us Miss.”
Why Dissent Matters tells a story of people who have been attacked, bullied, ostracized, jailed, and, sometimes when it is all over, celebrated. Dissent is noisy, messy, inconvenient, and almost always time-consuming, but suppressing it is usually a mistake – it’s bad for the dissenter but worse for the rest of us.
William Kaplan contends that we don’t have to do what dissenters want, but we should listen to what they say.
Our problems are not going away. There will always be abuses of power to confront, wrongs to right, and new opportunities for dissenting voices to say, “Stop, listen to me.”
Listening to what dissenters have to say, may well lead to a different and more just future.

The President of Belarus exposed that the World Bank coronavirus aid comes with conditions for imposing extreme lockdown measures, to model their coronavirus response on that of Italy, and even changes in the economic policies which he refused as being “unacceptable”.
