Daily Life Lessons with Ashley 'Dotty' Charles: On Outrage

Exploring the insatiable taste for outrage in today’s world, BBC presenter and DJ Ashley ‘Dotty’ Charles calls for return to civility in her brilliant book, Outraged. Familiar with the provocation and ongoing battles of our age, Dotty’s message is clear: the only way to make the world a better place is to learn to channel our responses, and to hit back with insight, not insult.

Dotty explores our age of outrage, and how it's debasing civil discourse. We are living in a post-modern utopia of sorts, where, thanks to our resolute predecessors, we've checked a bunch of items off our outrage shopping list. But what do you do when you keep winning your battles? Well, you pick new ones, of course. Ours is a society where many practice provocation, the tactless but effective tool of pedalling outrage - and we all too quickly take the bait. If outrage has become abundant, activism has definitely subdued. There is still much to be outraged by in our final frontier - the gender pay gap, racial bias, gun control - but in order to enact change and become more effective online, we must learn to channel our responses. This is the essential guide to living through the age of outrage. Listen to the prologue of her book below.

Listen to Dotty's brilliant Daily Life Lesson as she explains that the only way to make the world a better place is learn to channel our responses, and to hit back with insight, not insult.
