Ideologies and the institutions that exploit them, are killing us.
Ideologies are religions, sacrosanct ways of acting or being, beliefs, narratives. They are attractive ways to escape responsibility. They are convenient tools for nefarious meddlers.
I am becoming more convinced that ideologies, and our propensity to adopt interpretations of reality from others, cause our problems.
If, with curiosity and wisdom, we consider everything and believe nothing, I think we are more likely to survive and prosper.
Somehow, we have to increase and improve our exploring and critical thinking.
