This Funzing Experience:
What exactly is a ‘post-truth’ world and why are we falling into a slide towards a world of Orwellian control? How can we best find the balance between security, protection of people’s sensitivities and liberty, and what can we do to help keep true freedom of speech alive?

In this talk, Andy Thomas, author of The Truth Agenda and Conspiracies, investigates how freedom and genuine free speech needs to be fought for in an age of mass deception, and a very clear programme of international censorship of online material.

The campaign against ‘fake news’ is being misused to shut down perfectly legitimate and legal avenues of enquiry into areas authorities would appear not to want us to be questioning, while public reactions are simultaneously manipulated and surveillance increases.

Venue: The Joker

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm

*Please see venue website for admission (age restrictions) or accessibility information. Our talks may be filmed for promotional purposes.

Held in a hand picked range of bars across London, a Funzing Talks event makes the perfect after work activity.

Delve into a totally new subject and challenge your perspectives over a beer with like-minded Londoners. Funzing has always encouraged you to do something different with your free time, so we say do just that - you never know where it may lead you!
