With the rise of nationalist populism and the return of race politics, it's time to question the powers at play.

Why are we so reluctant to talk about it, let alone deal with it? Former Race Discrimination Commissioner, Tim Soutphommasane (On Hate) and former President of the Australian Human Rights Commission, Gillian Triggs (Speaking Up) debate how hatred and vitriol are shaping our society and our politics, moderated by the Region Media's group editor, Genevieve Jacobs. This is an urgent call for citizens to defend democracy against extremism.
