Caitlin Johnstone I think this is probably the most important thing you have written. As you said, and many of us have realized, we are at an evolutionary turning point. The changes needed are fundamental. The challenge is understanding how fundamental. And i think you are correct. It is exactly this fundamental. War, conquest, materialism, authoritarianism, planetary destruction are all based on rape. We can’t eliminate rape but we have built civilization on condoning and encouraging it. The results of that will kill us unless we change. Our time has run out.
This is serious buckling up time. Looking at the responses of those unable to face this reality is like watching worms suddenly placed on the hook wriggling frantically. But this needs to be done do that they have only themselves to blame.
