In the swirl of events, I’m often left wondering if there’s something deeper going on. Our leaders seem to be increasingly missing the bigger picture. A glimpse, here and there, into the underlying cause of dead ends we’ve reached: problems with capitalism, the media, politics, climate, conflict, health care. Is there a common cause?
2016 might arguably be characterized as the year we all decided we’d had enough of government as usual. Between Brexit, the Trump ascendancy, and the sheer energy behind the Bernie Sanders campaign, it seems that many are thinking, “enough is enough”. And that’s the good news. When disenfranchised groups have zero representation, then terrorism and revolt seem to be the inevitable outcomes.
