On this episode, I’m speaking with Gail Bradbrook. Gail is a founder of Extinction Rebellion, one of the most exciting political movements on the planet right now (IMO). Extinction Rebellion is a group that believes that time has run out to address the ecological crisis and that it is the right and duty of every citizen to rebel in order to compel the government to tell the truth and decarbonize the economy in as short a period as possible. The movement is growing exponentially in Europe, and has already shut down the city of London through direct action and civil disobedience. Together Gail and I talk about the past, present, and possible future of Extinction Rebellion. We cover such territory as the visionary and psychedelic origins of Extinction Rebellion, how to orient ourselves in the face of possible human extinction, how to balance urgency and trust in activism, and how Extinction Rebellion could use distributed organizational architectures to enable mass participation in this emerging movement.
