Mind The Gap

On an individual level we stuff ourselves with food and drugs, and suffer levels of mental pain and anguish that are off the charts. On a group level, we manage to find endless reasons to butcher other people, or let them just drown at sea, or at minimum make them feel like dirt. On a global level, we are poisoning the only planet we have. It may be time for the Western mind to swallow, take a deep breath, and admit, in the face of impending catastrophe, it doesn't have all the answers.
