Inhuman. It's time to do something about it. It's time to put people first. It's time to make the world more human. Steve Hilton, visiting professor at Stanford University and former senior adviser to Prime Minister David Cameron, believes that the frustrations people have with government, politics, their economic circumstances and their daily lives are caused by deep structural problems in the systems that dominate our modern world a€“ systems that are broken because they've grown too far from the human scale.
