We are currently living though a new epidemic of insanity … one that’s far darker, more vast and troubling than anything the pioneers of psychoanalysis could have imagined. 60 million people in the United States, approximately a fifth of the population, are suffering from mental illness— mood disorders, anxiety, depression, schizophrenia, OCD, ADD, PTSD, and the rest. Though the symptoms differ, it’s no longer possible to diagnose or treat this collective insanity at the level of the individual. There is a madness in the air affecting us all. The DSM-V named dozens more mental illnesses into existence this year but we still don’t have a word to describe the collective insanity we’re stewing in, not any insight into where it’s coming from, nor how to get out. The best of us know that we will never get better so long as we live in a sick culture. Looking at America’s symptoms—obesity, hoarding, eating disorders, addictions of every kind from cigarettes to pills—it’s clear that we remain hopelessly orally fixated. Remember—everyone in Rome got fat before the great empire fell…. Stefanie Krasnow, Adbusters

When you cut off arterial blood to an organ, the organ dies. When you cut the flow of nature into people’s lives, their spirit dies. It’s as simple as that. Kalle Lasn
