Harmony, Dissent and Politics.

From time to time I depart from the psychology of individuals to focus on the psychology of a nation because these past few weeks and months have been punctuated by upheaval and politics. It’s as if the nation as a whole behaves like a dysfunctional individual. Domestic terrorism is a form of self harming and domestic politics is riven with bluster, dissent and division. The principles of a just society are in place but the nation isn’t functioning harmoniously.

Where do we go from here? The fundamental morals of the majority of us is the glue that holds society together. Terrorism will not intimidate nor divide us. Political friction will not turn us against one another. These days do feel like a struggle at times but we’re guided by an undiminished sense of right and wrong and that right will ultimately prevail.
