We need a conversation around kindness in our increasingly harsh and divided culture


Welcome to season 2 of Delorean Philosophy.

On Saturday, 14 October 2023, Australians voted in a referendum about changing the Constitution to recognise the First Peoples of Australia by establishing a body called the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Voice. The referendum did not pass.

In this episode, Steve McAlpine takes stock of this outcome, and how the vote cast a light on a deeper problem in society.

Steve asks why complex societal issues are often reduced to binary facets: YES or NO? Why does there seem to be no room in the middle?

In the wake of the referendum failure, Prime Minister Anthony Albanese called on Australians to show more kindness to one another.

Steve points out that it is indeed kindness – but not the type many would expect – that may save our increasingly polarised culture.

What is Delorean Philosophy?

Where are we going as a society? And will you be happy when we get there? Steve McAlpine is here to help you answer those questions.

If a Delorean time machine pulled up in front of your house – Back To The Future style – and someone offered to show you what the future would be like, would you be content with what you found? And if not, what could you do to change it? Thinking this through is what Steve McAlpine calls Delorean Philosophy.

Steve McAlpine is a well-known social commentator, respected theologian and popular author. Each week, he takes a crucial trend or event that’s playing out in society now and asks, “Where is this taking us?”

Rather than just pontificating, Steve then provides practical steps listeners can take if they want to change the future. That’s Delorean Philosophy.
