I’d like to recommend an article in the NewStatesman about the Dark Mountain Project. Like so many others in the so-called “First World,” I’ve gotten used to burying my head in the sand with respect to where we’re all (and I mean all) headed and why we’re headed there because of “the stories that our societies like to tell themselves, the stories that prevent us seeing clearly the extent of the ecological, social and cultural unravelling that is now underway.” It might sound like Dark Mountain is a gloom and doom project. It isn’t. It’s about opening our eyes and helping us cope with the world in an honest way. It’s a way of appreciating just how much our future will eventually become our descendants’ past. It’s a way that may change how you view your part in what is and what is to come.
