“The Worst of Times…”
Humanity is in deep trouble…on multiple avenues of destruction. We label this “The Mess.”
Our society is pulling itself apart, facing interlocking crises of unparalleled and almost unimaginable proportions. The divisions separating us – lines of class, caste, color and ideology – are getting wider, with no end in sight. As an ecology, our social life is highly toxic. We have lost our spiritual center. No one person or group can solve our problems; only by learning and practicing inclusivity will we be able to pull together instead of pulling apart.
We must have a clear understanding of our present precarious position, in order to move beyond empty gestures and partial measures – to clear, effective action.
