Maybe We Need an Emergency
Maybe we need an emergency to wake us up out of our bad habits of war,
of reptilian brain responses, of patriarchy unchecked.
Maybe Climate Change is that emergency. Maybe French playwright Antonin Artaud is correct when he wrote in 1938 that “it is right that from time-to-time cataclysms occur which compel us to return to nature, i.e., to rediscover life.”
