Would the World Be Better Without Religion? | Ash Sarkar Talks to Aaron Bastani

Twenty years ago, it was taken for granted that on average, globally, people 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 no longer should take this for granted.

Ash 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.
