HyperNormalisation HyperNormalisation

Our world is strange and often fake and corrupt. But we think it’s normal because we can’t see anything else. HyperNormalisation—the story of how we got here.

The extraordinary story of how we got to this strange time of great uncertainty and confusion—where those who are supposed to be in power are paralysed—and have no idea what to do. Where events keep happening that seem inexplicable and out of control—from Donald Trump to Brexit, the War in Syria, the endless migrant crisis, and random bomb attacks. It explains not only why these chaotic events are happening—but also why we, and our politicians, cannot understand them.
