I am adding a quite a few political posts of late. I put them in the World category. But I think I’ll stop posting them, and focus on psyche and cyberspace.
I see the fate of the world as a psychological phenomena. The cyberspace aspect is vital as well, so my “World” posts are not really off topic. I am deeply concerned, angry, and scared about the fate of the world. However there are a bunch of left-wing bloggers and websites that do all of this really well. Maybe I’ll put a bunch of those in the sidebar. Promote them more.
We are heading for disaster with war, climate and nuclear weaponry. If the world is like the Titanic, then we need to avoid that iceberg, grab the wheel, or slow down, or strengthen the ship in some way.
What I know best is psyche and cyberspace. In those fields there may be some answers. I think I have been posting in vain to vent anger, to point to the Emperors new clothes, to say we are on the eve of destruction. But I will sticl with the way in which psychological work is needed.
Crazy? It might sound that way because we are in an Orwellian world, where words mean their opposite. Or they mean nothing at all.
Psyche always was a complex idea. Think of Marx’s idea of class consciousness.

Did not post this in 2010, but put it up today. I’ve added the tag: About – about me about the world and about this weblog.
