We have known for a very long time that we are an unstable mixture of Good and Bad, of Love and Hate. War and Peace are built into our genes. But we seem to prefer War.
We should have kept this carefully in mind as we ventured into the Modern World – but we forgot, in the excitement of developing our new capabilities. And this excitement got much worse with Industrialization, and Globalization. When we went completely crazy – and lost our minds entirely.
The worst people among us took advantage of this situation to enrich themselves. And everyone else thought this was inevitable.
This is such a simple diagnosis, and so shocking, people cannot accept it. The Industrial Way of Life had made us wealthy beyond our wildest dreams – and made us feel we were superhuman. How could that be bad?
The answer is all around us – in a global social collapse.
