 Patho-Adolescent vs. Mature Politics Learning for changeBill Plotkin – “I believe our political scene mostly exhibits a pathological form of adolescence, a way of life marked by aggressive competitiveness, lack of cooperation, violence, greed, corruption, consumerism, social injustice, environmental carelessness and blindness (ecological illiteracy), fundamentalisms and other literalisms, and us-vs.-them forms of nationalism, regionalism, racism, genderism, and classism.
