What’s really going on?
I’d suggest, without being glib, dislocation from what is.
That’s not to be confused with powerlessness, but if we wanted to change things — on a macro or micro level — we would.
Imagine a world where we sacrificed our time without reward for something beyond our current imagination. Less Big Society, more a ReImagined Society. This would go beyond a helping hand, but we’d bear down on what’s really important.
Is that achievable?
No, absolutely not, whilst ‘we’ (the ‘me’) live separate and apart. But cut the Gordian Knot on our individualistic society, and things look radically different.
