Are We All Very Anxious?

Below is an interesting article on how capitalism in each stage has an affect that holds it together.  The article pinpoints a movement from misery through boredom to the current affect of anxiety.  It also then discusses how we might repond to this situation, here are a few quotes to whet your appetite:

“The exercise of voice moves the reference of truth and reality from the system to the speaker, contributing to the reversal of perspective – seeing the world through one’s own perspective and desires, rather than the system’s”

“The goal is to produce the click — the moment at which the structural source of problems suddenly makes sense in relation to experiences. This click is which focuses and transforms anger. Greater understanding may in turn relieve psychological pressures, and make it easier to respond with anger instead of depression or anxiety.”
