#23 – The World According To Aubrey – Oscar Wilde, Racism, Conquistadors and Marijuana

Written by The Natural High

In this episode of The Natural High Club I speak with my inimitable and unique friend Aubrey Lambie to talk about the world’s problems, friendship, marijuana and to remind ourselves that there is still so much to cherish.

The killing of George Floyd in America reminded us that, although many of us hoped that racism was largely a thing of the past, deep divisions and hatred still exists. We have come a long way but have so much further to go before we can truly see ourselves as racially egalitarian.

Over the last two weeks I for one have been immensely proud of how many people have mobilized in support of the Black Lives Matter campaign. In America tens of thousands have ignored the curfews imposed by the government to make their feelings known about systemic racism in the police force and beyond. We simply won’t have it.

Having marched in protest myself I see so many people from the younger generation demonstrating peacefully in protest at the sickening treatment of ethnic minorities which still endures in USA. If the youthful exuberance of these protests is anything to go by then perhaps we can be hopeful of a brighter tomorrow.

Demonstrators have reminded themselves that we live in a supposed democracy where we elect public servants to manage and execute the will of the nation, not in an autocracy where we can be quietened at will by a government reducing the liberties of citizens with enforced curfews. In these dark times there are strands of optimism which point to a fairer future. we discuss this and so much more in this episode.
