The AntiCraft Blog
Feb 11, 2009
An Insane Society

My friend Todd shared an article with me that spoke to me on several levels. The following quote sums up a lot of why I wanted to help start something like The AntiCraft:
Human beings are every day and in numerous ways psychologically, socially, and spiritually assaulted by a culture which:

* creates increasing material expectations
* devalues human connectedness
* socializes people to be self-absorbed
* obliterates self-reliance
* alienates people from normal human emotional reactions
* sells false hope that creates more pain
You can read the entire article Fundamentalist Consumerism and an Insane Society by Bruce E. Levine here.

Agreed. Mostly. Toxic culture is on the minds of many of us.
