“All life is individual life, in which alone, the ultimate meaning is to be found.” — Carl Jung
People often look outward at their neighborhoods, cities, states and nations as though such groupings of people are entities or personalities in and of themselves.
As tempting as this view may be, it lends itself to blaming what cannot be blamed–as though the nation acted independently of the will of those who live there. So, too, does it provide an easy scapegoat to all who believe they’re not playing a role in the place where they live through silence or action or apathy.
Everything is the responsibility of us all as we tend to ourselves and share with our fellow men.
