Lonely + Extreme
March 25, 2022 @ NOON | God Squad | LOCATION TBD
Lonely and Extreme: A conversation about how to really fix extremism

Registration coming soon!

Given the dangerous rise of political extremism in America, it’s well past time we stopped wagging our fingers and do a bit of soul searching of our own about why our society is producing so many citizens unmoored from the connections that support moderation.  Many experts point to the epidemic of loneliness or mass loneliness, what Hannah Arendt called “the seedbed of tyranny.” Others believe changes in relationships between men and women in the digital age contributes. We’ll speak especially about our young men on campus and off, who seem especially susceptible to the kind of loneliness that can drive extremism.
