Quotes from the Festival Yesterday:

“The NRA misrepresents what the majority of their members support from a policy perspective. They certainly don’t represent the four million people they claim to represent.” —Dan Gross

“We’re living in an age of an unprecedented chasm in income distribution, and we’ve been slow to notice.” —Chrystia Freeland

“In the old days, the power lay with content creators, who created programs to run at certain time. We’re increasingly living in a time when the power is in the hands of consumers: they control where they see it, how they see it, and when they see it.” —César Conde

“The majority of Pakistanis now think Malala is a Western conspiracy.” —Shiza Shahid
