Downstream: Would the World Be Better Without Religion? w/ Aaron Bastani and Ash Sarkar

Listen on

Episode notes

Twenty years ago, it was taken for granted that on average, people globally were shrugging off the shackles of organised religion. The world was destined for secularism. But with demographics trends in many countries pointing towards a growing religious population and with secular liberal politics failing to offer solace from falling living standards, we should no longer take this for granted.

Ash Sarkar is joined by Aaron Bastani, Novara’s co-founder to discuss his faith, the socialist interpretation of the gospel and the big guy with the beard – that’s right – Karl Marx.
