Freud watching the rise of fascism in the 1930’s and the inevitability of another World War wrote in a discussion with Einstein ‘Why War?’ that it was due to man’s “instinct for hatred and destruction”, co-existing with the instinct “to preserve and unite”.
We are currently once again in an endgame seemingly dominated by self-destruction this time through climate catastrophe or the threat of nuclear war. Why do our elected leaders turn a blind eye and why do we accept it?
