#1LinerWeds from the Huffington Post/Times of India

Isn’t it absurd that we, 7 billion of us living in the same planet, have grown further apart from each other?

I know some of you know Bee Halton, and if you don’t, run right over to her blog now and get to know her (the link opens in a separate window, which all good links do). She posted a link to an article on the Huffington Post that was originally posted on Medium called “Something Extraordinary Is Happening in the World, And Most People Haven’t Noticed” by Gustavo Tanaka. It’s a fascinating article that explores a number of trends that he’s noticed are happening among the people of the world. He makes the observation that’s my one-liner for today about mideway through the article.

  1. Thanks for the mention. That sentence jumped at me too even though I believe it is a more contradictory trend: we grow closer and further apart at the same time. On the one hand we have more and more chances to meet people from other countries and cultures but I start to believe that it is overwhelming too. Too much information that our poor brains can’t compute so to speak. Still this article has given me hope that a positive change is possible despite Brexit, Trump and rising racism of all sorts.


    1. I think things are changing after close to a century of people going along with whatever their politicians decide for them. People want more of a say over how they live their lives and are tired of laws being set by people who don’t listen. To do that, they have to work with each other, something that we’ve gotten bad at. People would be surprised at how closely they agree with each other if they compare notes, something I’m convinced politicians are trying to avoid. They get their power by playing people off one another, creating problems where there are really none.
