I fear that western human society, as we know it, is collapsing or about to collapse around the world.
I think that is the inevitable consequence economically, socially and emotionally of the rush to isolation from each other which is now considered wise.
Everyone seems to forget that in the vicinity of 97% of people who get the Covid 19 virus look like surviving.
Modern inability to face the fact of death stops too many people seeing that, overall, those are good odds.
The foundation for the current madness is the widespread death of love.
This has happened in The West because too many people have grown comfortable with hating themselves, hating their own societies and hating their innate personal capacity for truth.
In 1993 the great Australian poet, Les Murray, wrote of “self-abasement studies”.
Isn’t this an astonishing metaphor for how some idiots in The West destroy themselves and those around them?
Is it too late?
Or can the truth still set us free?
