SYDNEY - Theodore Dalrymple: Is Society Broken? SOLD OUT

“If the history of the 20th Century proved anything, it proved that however bad things were, human ingenuity could usually find a way to make them worse.” – Theodore Dalrymple

A (now-retired) prison doctor and psychiatrist, Theodore Dalrymple challenges liberal mainstream views about the causes of crime and the reality of poverty. With a first-hand knowledge of the impact of the welfare state and a culture of dependence on British society, he does not pull his punches in diagnosing the problems at the heart of western culture. Join Theodore for a compelling discussion about poverty, crime and inequality.

The Centre for Independent Studies is excited to partner with the Sydney Opera House to host this special event as part of our 40th anniversary Lighthouse Lecture Series.
