In this episode, Annick van Rinsum interviews public speaker, columnist for the newspaper Trouw, and writer of several books; Babah Tarawally. They discuss the possibility of having more meaningful relationships when we let go of privilege. For him, the black and white thinking that we are often trapped in, is a sign of being in a depressive state. Therefore, he sees heavy polarisation in society as a sickness, instead of something evil. Much of Tarawally’s reflections and insights about society are based on Ubuntu philosophy, which encourages him to approach society from the idea that we are all connected.
