If you personify our country as that person you know who has crazy old-wound issues but refuses to get therapy and work them out, you realize that it’s not weird at all that we spend most of our time looking outward and butting into completely external things while we continue to suffer internally because we don’t want to start with fixing ourselves. What usually becomes of the people with deep old trauma that never deal with it? From what I’ve seen…they self-destruct.
