Bright Ideas

20Oct14

Being encouraged to think isn’t something that happens as much as it should do. So time spent at the Battle of Ideas this weekend, a two day event encouraging “free thinking and open-ended public discussion” at the Barbican, was a bit of a treat.

In the America: the twilight years? session that I attended on Sunday morning Sir Christopher Meyer referenced the much disputed quotation from Zhou Enlai who when asked about the impact of the French revolution several hundred years later replied that it was too early too say.

So I may scribble down my (largely illegible) notes at some point soon, although I might just let the thoughts rumble about making connections when the time is right. That said unless medical science takes some leaps and bounds in the next few years I might not be able to wait quite as long as Enlai to reach my conclusions.
