Splinterlands

Great piece at TomDispatch by John Feffer on”Splinterlands.” As human problems become more global in the age of the “Anthropocene,” we nonetheless find ourselves increasingly divided…

As everyone now knows, however, this spirit of integration would, in the end, go down to defeat as the bloodlands of the twentieth century gave way to the splinterlands of the twenty-first. The sense of disintegration and disunity that settled over our world came at precisely the wrong moment. To combat a host of collective problems, we needed more unity, not less. As we are all learning the hard way, a planet divided against itself will not long stand.
