The Madness of Our Time
The Denial of The Human Under the Guise of Human Concern

Dr. Urs HonauerIt’s been almost thirty years since Arno Gruen published his insightful book The Insanity of Normality. He committed to paper his profound insights to guide the world toward a better future. Three decades later we are experiencing a world that has landed stronger than ever in that past that Gruen wanted to leave behind. Human destructiveness reveals itself under the cloak of realism, security, and globalization in its ugliest lies and features - e.g. in politics, economics, sports, health care, and education. It takes courage and strength to swim against this current.


By Dr. Urs Honauer, Director, Polarity Bildungszentrum (PBZ) and Zentrum für Innere Ökologie (ZIO)


Paralyzing anxiety, explosive anger, repressed grief, dissociated helplessness, pent-up disgust coupled with a lack of contact with the self, are having an emotional boom. The longing for real autonomy, out of which I can see the world with my own eyes, and the need for real closeness with internally well-regulated people, can live together, but has been buried to a great extent. Instead, dependence on external compulsive patterns reigns - more and more people feel they have to adapt to meet the needs of others. The paradox of this situation we are experiencing internationally in more and more countries with the „election“ of power-hungry, callous, often highly traumatized leaders who feel compelled to demonstrate harshness, who then issue orders and decrees, which further increase the dependence on the outside. From their misguided identity, immature people choose coldhearted leaders who tell them what to do in order to be recognized and to be happy.

Emotionally affected internal splits and armor have been the breeding ground for terrible acts of power with wars and oppression among the most brutal in history. Unfortunately, if the story repeats itself over and over again (although we know from significant insights from people like Arno Gruen how to expose the evil and the destructiveness), then how is this possible? Why are we still a society of illiterates when it comes to the conscious handling of emotions? Although we live in a time of ever greater information density, there is at the same time no link with the whole of life. Connections, links, interweaving of facts, emotional aspects or isolated emotions are not yet in the mainstream, although we know from various biological and psychological sources that „connectedness“ is a biodynamic imperative. The motherchild bond is the archetypal model for this nourishing and inspiring togetherness. Read more...
