It is time for a new view of human nature? The Dutch historian Rutger Bregman makes a new argument: that it is realistic, as well as revolutionary, to assume that people are good. In conversation with the award-winning film director and humanitarian campaigner Richard Curtis, they discuss how humans have the wrong view about themselves and that faith in humanity is what create real and long lasting change.
