The Atomic Individual And The Death Of Civilization
SEE HERE This is a pointer to a Delancey Place piece sent out this morning on the Death of the Nuclear Family. The family is the core reality of civilization. It is not the individual. This is a recipe indeed for the death of civilization and the rise of a kind of "Brave New World" of the atomic individual, but that will be a world without compassion, a world of one individual manipulating another, a world of cold calculation. It will not be civilization and it will likely not be all that civil. We are seeing it rise up among us now and it will only get worse.
