posticon Is the World Driving You Crazy? by John Cali

Posted on   by

This past week’s newsletter article was Are You Trying To Save the World? Here’s our brief introduction to that article:

Lately, for whatever reason, I’ve been hearing a lot from folks having a tough time with what’s happening on our planet today—the wars, corruption, financial collapses, crime, etc. etc. They feel lost and lonely, despairing of ever being able to change things for the better.

Is our world going to hell in a handbasket? Is there any hope, any light at the end of the tunnel?”
