ONE WORLD SPRING 2022 IS HERE
"FOR BETTER OR FOR WORSE?"
For the first time in the history of the magazine, we had chosen to lead with a question.
President Joe Biden isn’t holding up to his promises: how do we hold him accountable?
Prison recidivism rates are sky-high: how do we heal broken systems?
Medical technology is moving forward: how do we know if it is moving too fast?
There is humanity in our own not-knowing: our perpetual ignorance might just be the only common ground we ever stake.
“One World” does not mean “One United Front.” It means forfeiting total unity for the acknowledgement of mortality—for discretion—for difference. How do we want to balance that difference? How do we know if we’re getting it right? How do we live on fulcrums and faultlines, reckoning our own experiences and desires with the infinite untapped wisdoms of others’?
And if you find yourself saying, “I Don’t Know,” note that sometimes, “I Don’t Know” is an appropriate answer.
Fondly and on behalf of the magazine,
Fall 2021 - Spring 2022
