    Dutch historien Bregman believes that we can construct a society with visionary ideas (eg universal basic income, a 15-hour work week) that are, in fact, wholly implementable.

    We live in a time of unprecedented upheaval, when technology and so-called progress have made us richer but more uncertain than ever before. We have questions about the future, society, work, happiness, family and money, and yet no political party of the right or left is providing us with answers. So, too, does the time seem to be coming to an end when we looked to economists to help us define the qualities necessary to create a successful society...We need a new movement. One defined by a young historian who can tell us the truth about how we got here. They'd be a political outsider, the voice of their generation, one who doesn't harness rage or agitate grievances but who provides us with the answer's for which we've been looking. That person is Rutger Bregman and his vision is Utopia for Realists.
