Timeless Values in a Shifting World
Nexus Library, volume XI, bilingual hardcover edition of the Nexus Lecture 2015
The democratic societies of the modern world are facing challenges new and old to their openness and security. The territorial integrity of Europe has been breached by Vladimir Putin’s dictatorship while terror both from abroad and home-grown has no simple solutions. Evil still persists in the world today and will only grow if unopposed. Open societies that cannot protect their citizens will not remain open for long.
Times change. Circumstances change. Institutions must change. But our values must not.
