Our civilization is under a huge amount of stress and strain these days, so much so that we really are at a tipping point; this is obvious simply by looking around. Education, poverty, war, safety & well being, substance abuse, firearm misuse, homelessness, food production, environmental abuse just to name a few. Yikes! Seems like an insurmountable list! When viewed as isolated or separate issues it definitely is; trying to fix them in this manner is similar to an unending game of Whack-A-Mole which can only end in frustration, inaction and apathy. Instead, let's mentally chuck the lot, start again, look at things from the bottom up, from the beginning and find a new pathway forward that can, by its very nature, whack a large number of those moles leaving us with the time, energy and resources to manage what remains.
