Mayday Issue 4
A magazine about culture, society, technology and unpredictable realities.
The fourth issue explores radical ideas, technologies and viewpoints – in hopes of understanding. Because we can’t shy away from views or ideas that seem extreme, only by virtue of being different than our own. So we face the future head-on, take stock and work our way forward. The journey takes us from right-wing extremism to Kundalini yoga, and from gene drives to historical eccentrics. Maybe we can find some answers somewhere in between.
