Neil Pitts, author of "Postmodernity and Creation of the Anthropocene"; We discuss how the Russian invasion of Ukraine will shape the evolution of global politics in the years to come. What is the role of the UN? How does climate change affect this evolution? After the discussion he explains, "what it was that I was really trying to say - and it's generally that the structure of geopolitics is holding us back in so many ways, including important issues like the environment, but only a change in the age itself is going to enable a new type of politics to appear - so, it would be a good idea for everyone to get onto this now, as it could otherwise take much longer for the climate change action we need to occur, along with a whole range of social issues. I don't really understand how people can shout in the street 'we want change, we want action' without really understanding what it is that is actually holding governments back. What is holding them back is the state of politics means it's like a turn-based board game, where one country moves forward a bit, then another will only take action if they take action, etc. We need to get into the frame of mind that it's a new human age, and we can do it, regardless of what everyone else is doing, because that's how people now behave in our present time. To move the world forward from the Postmodern/ Cold War mentality."
