What we want to look at is What is the cause of this massive disconnect in all sorts of areas of public life. We live in a world that boasts of connectivity. But we need to ask. What exactly are we being connected to and who is doing the connecting?
This is something that should create concern never more so today when not only the violence and carnage being met out on peoples around the world in order to sustain the worst elements of what we call capitalism, which scarily includes the collapse of our eco system that is threatening our very existence
So the six degrees of separation. The idea that all people on average are six, or fewer, social connections away from each other. As a result, a chain of “friend of a friend” statements can be made to connect any two people in a maximum of six steps.
How close should we be to our common problems and solutions, if the relationship of every human being on the planet could be connected by six degrees of separation.
If that is all we are separated by why is it so difficult to see our similarities? And in turn how to work together to alleviate these very real dangers in our lives.
