In this talk, Andreas discusses the word of the season, unprecedented. Unprecedented pandemic, unprecedented job losses, unprecedented incompetence. Our institutions of governance have started to fail us and our narratives are broken. The narratives of the 20th century, the narrative of the nation state and associated institutions no longer apply. So what might governance look like if we had rules without rulers?
