Overview

The 21st century has seen an upsurge in populist regimes around the globe. Social media algorithms are increasingly polarizing society, and the Covid-19 pandemic has brought about a lot of mistrust in public institutions and independent media outlets. The presidency of Donald Trump in the U.S. showed some of the devastating consequences data manipulation and misinformation can have.

Pete Buttigieg is an American politician and former military officer. He was the 32nd mayor of South Bend, Indiana from 2012 to 2020. Buttigieg was a presidential candidate in the 2020 Democratic presidential primaries. He now serves as Secretary of Transportation under the Biden administration.

In Trust: America's Best Chance, Buttigieg explores how trust has become a burning issue in American society in the past decade. With a rise in conspiracy thinking, anti-vaccination propaganda, and climate change denialism, building trust in government institutions, scientists, and media is becoming crucial.

Favorite Quote

"To love a country, as to love a person, is to love a flawed and exquisite creation, to see what is best in it, to be angry when it is not what it could be, precisely because you have seen glimmers of its greatness."
