Beginning with the whiplash effect of rapidly changing stories and disturbing dramas of this time, Michael Meade takes up the issues of collective anxiety and increasing rates of suicide in contemporary life. He describes how a loss of soul at the collective level of life leads to increasing levels of cruelty and inhumanity. At the same time, the loss of soul creates isolation and alienation, pushing more people to the margins of life and the edges of despair. Meade concludes with the idea that we are each in a struggle for the connective power of the soul, individually, nationally and, given the global turbulence, we are in a struggle for the Soul of the World.
