Reg Radicals lecture encompasses far right, libertarians, and mushrooms...
Let’s leave the polyamorists out of this for now
Reg Lectures If the recent election’s clash of centre right and a bit left leaves you cold, perhaps the prospect of libertarians versus transhumanists might make you sit up and take notice.
Those were just two of the alternatives Jamie Bartlett highlighted in his Register Lecture, covering his latest book, Radicals, which details two years of researching, and occasionally living with, a range individuals and groups proposing radically different ways to organise society.
Over the course of the talk, Jamie covered his experiences travelling with the US transhumanist party, reported from inside the echo chamber with groups like the EDL, and explained the reasons why a century-old border dispute between Serbia and Croatia could result in the world’s first ultra-libertarian state.

What you won’t see is the Q&A, where topics like psychedelic and polyamorous communes were thrown into the mix - after the usual Reg lecture nibbles and top-ups break.
But don’t worry. We’re cooking up some more lectures that will run in the autumn. To ensure your space, watch this space.
