The challenge in US America is an extremely tall order given its history, its economic system and the self-defeating and harming myths of exceptionalism and everyone for themselves as in the complete misunderstanding of “freedom”.
It falls to each one of us to change this and see that “civilization” really is one person at a time. We work for the good to establish in ourselves so that the perfect can come into existence in our environment.
My heart is with each family that has lost loved so unnecessarily to this virus that is rapidly mutating now.

An interview with Dr. Joseph Varon
Well said. Actually, we DO need to see how far we’ve fallen, not do the American Innocence dance again. Our culture refuses to deal with dark emotions and events, immediately clamoring for “feel-good” stuff.
One by one, dealing with each other with kindness. Yes, even the MAGA’s. We may think we can’t get through the wall they’ve built to avoid thinking, which means we go around it. Ask them what makes them happy, how they show compassion and kindness. How they would like the culture to change. Redefining “happiness” as a sense of balance and interdependence, not as shopping or entertainment, or having a great house and the best car, is a good start.
