This is the English version of a blog I wrote for Swedish Radio in advance on my talk at the annual Swedish political get-together called Almadalen. Think of the big things that happen in the world and how you know about them. Stockholm riots, National Security Agency surveillance, the Syrian war. Then think about three small things you need to know: football club fixtures, kids exam results, a good restaurant to eat tonight.
