In a world of sanitized, politicized and agenda-filled news broadcasts, finding the truth has become a full-time job. We are confronted by a cacophony of trite media stories that have little or nothing to do with our reality in the present or, more importantly, the future. Yet for all the noise there is no clarity, no critical thinking, no objective voices to defend our society from an imminent future for which we are more than ill-prepared.
Raise awareness of the coming challenges to our society. We are the canary in the coal mine, stress testing the future.
Playing with degrees of variations, our mission is to instigate change and transformation on personal, social, societal, and political levels.
We are a compass to our potential futures.
Philosophy, transparency, ethics and values
The Dead Rabbit Society is committed to objectively analysing, discussing and disseminating directional information around the important questions of our time.
The ethical principles that we adhere to are the principles of justice, beneficence, non-maleficence, accountability, fidelity, autonomy, and veracity. We wish to effect change and increase awareness around the important issues of our time and those which will affect our collective future.
As such, we pledge to provide a transparent overview of all agreements, sponsorships, investments and vested interests in the Dead Rabbit Society.
Our philosophy is quite simple: all support and investment in the Dead Rabbit Society or any of our events, productions and publications will be clearly communicated.
We are, regardless of support, fiercely independent and will not sacrifice our principles, ethics or values in the course of our work.
Our world will undergo seismic changes in the coming 20-30 years, crossing the boundaries of science, technology, business, equality, education, sociology, philosophy and your everyday life experience.
“Believe nothing, no matter where you read it, or who said it, no matter if I have said it, unless it agrees with your own reason and your own common sense.” – Gautama Buddha
