5The question of suffering is never an easy one, and at times such as these, we wonder how it is possible for so much to have gone so wrong. Even if we struggle to find an exhaustive answer to a question such as this, it may be possible to find a meaningful one.

9At the onset of a new decade, chaos reigns more prolifically than ever. Far from the fresh new beginning that people hoped for, COVID-19 has delivered uncertainty, volatility and anxiety. In a world that seems to be spiralling increasingly out of control, how can we make sense of the future of our economy, our work, our travel and ultimately, of life itself?
