Expressions of physical love are far more dangerous than expressions of physical hatred
Alan Watts, another prescient sage of the ages delivered this profound message decades ago, but unfortunately it resonates more accurately than ever. This thought-provoking five minute video gives a powerful insight into how our social systems may have unconsciously misdirected us. A conception that seems to explain the collective insanity of our relentless economic pursuits, that are depleting natural resources and human freedoms at an exponential rate. Perhaps this is why depression is increasing so rapidly, it will be the 2nd most disabling condition in the world by 2020, behind heart disease.
Watts believes the madness stems from our culture valuing hate more than love. “Expressions of physical love are far more dangerous than expressions of physical hatred,” Watts says. “And it seems to me that a culture that has that sort of assumption is basically crazy.”
