A Guide for the Perplexed
In this first issue of the Blueprint we go deep into the minds of nations and people … diagnosing the drives of geopolitical madness, societal schizophrenia and ecological sociopathy. American psychosis, Israel’s PTSD, France’s depression, Canada’s coming–of–age–crisis and Australia’s impenetrable denial.
We go one step deeper and pull back the bandages on the festering psychic wounds of our lives. Then, and only then, can we move through denial, anger, bargaining and depression to acceptance. But will our civilization ever be able to face up to its imminent mortality? Will we learn, as a civilization, how to die … and free ourselves to deal with what arises without fear?
