Certainly, if we look back to capitalism’s early form in mercantilism (the birthplace of the corporation), and proceed up to our present time with mixed economies and state capitalism, we have five hundred years of capitalist religion applied to bloody effect. We often speak of the Abrahamic religions, particularly Christianity and Islam, unleashing thousands of years of bloody conflict through warfare and religious genocide; but, we forget that nearly half a millennia of capitalism has wrought …

TO BE HOPEFUL in bad times is not just foolishly romantic. It is based on the fact that human history is a history not only of cruelty, but also of compassion, sacrifice, courage, kindness.<br>What we choose to emphasize in this complex history will determine our lives. If we see only the worst, it destroys our capacity to do something.

Locating problems in the culture rather than in the “self.”

Maps of Narrative Practice by Michael White. WW Norton, New York. (2007) pp. 25 & 26:<p>… many of the people who seek therapy believe that the problems in their lives are a reflection of their own identity or the identity of others. When this is the case, their efforts to resolve problems usually have the effect of exacerbating them instead. This leads people to even more solidly believe that the problems of their lives are a reflection of certain “truths” about their nature and their character, …
