"Whoops, well that would not be good.  In my view any of us can be possessed for a time by an archetype and the antidote is to become conscious of how that archetype needs to evolve in us.  I think the Republicans have a lot to offer and I care that…"

Mats Winther commented on Carol S. Pearson's blog post A Nation At War With Itself
"But to talk like this, i.e., "the President and the Republican Party are possessed by a primal, shadowy form of the Warrior archetype that threatens to engulf us all" sound very much like a Hitlerian projection. "

January is the time to clarify intents for the year. Notice that I did not say “make resolutions.”

For most people, resolutions are well meant, but often not achieved in practice.

This is the second of two blogs that address the coronavirus pandemic.

I’m going out very little during the coronavirus pandemic, while also taking time to stay connected—at a distance—with family, friends, and colleagues. It is so important in these times that people are not isolated. Simultaneously, I am working to use this…

The verdict is in: The President of the United States of America has abused his power, bullied another nation to provide him with personal political benefit, and covered this up in unprecedented ways. The Mueller investigation also identified many crimes he was party to as a candidate as well as numerous instances of obstruction of justice. He avoided being…
