Daily Life Lessons with Rutger Bregman: On Human Kindness

Photo credit: ©StephanVanfleteren

Rutger Bregman is surely set to be the next Yuval Noah Harari – with an added dash of optimism.  It’s a daring feat this historian has undertaken in his new book, Humankind: looking back on 200,000 years of human history and asking “what happens if we assume that everyone is inherently good?”.   With this in mind, events that we thought we knew start to look a bit different.  Bregman takes us inside prisons, into the Blitz, to a fox farm, to a shock machine and even onto a real-life Lord of the Flies island. It’s an important life lesson that he teaches us: that we can achieve a lot more if we believe in one another.

In his Daily Life Lesson, Rutger explores veneer theory, prison reform, the education system, democracy and more.
