Sarah Bosetti puts forward a bold thesis: The greatest threat to humanity is not climate, war and disasters, but populism.
Mouse-slipped? Climate terrorism? Disinfectant against corona? Birthday party for 69 deportations? This is the level at which the powerful of this world talk about the important political issues of our time. Yet almost all crises could be overcome if we were to face them with honest reason - which we fail to do with impressive consistency. That is why, in the fight against fake news, discrimination and shifting discourse, Sarah Bosetti takes on some of the most beautiful, worst or most absurd populist statements by well-known personalities - from Alice Schwarzer to Olaf Scholz and Vladimir Putin - and responds to them with clever and witty poems. She fights populism with the sharpest weapon she has: poetry!
