Michael Meade responds to three questions people continually ask him: Are people unwittingly playing with worldwide disaster by pulling out of nuclear agreements, climate accords and trade alliances? Why are people so readily polarized and ready to demonize whoever doesn’t agree with them? And why are so many people falling into conspiracy theories and delusional fantasies? Surprisingly, all three questions are answered with the same ancient notion that sometimes everything must go upside down before things can turn around again. Sometimes we have to face the chaos in order to find paths to renewal.
