Peter Singer – The new freedom of expression…

-Peter Singer

Peter Singer – In the sense that you’re…


“In the sense that you’re not at the centre of power, like a president or prime minister of a major power, everyone is marginalised my position doesn’t isn’t unique in that respect. I think there are different sorts of relevance in different contexts.”
