Humanity’s Crisis of Purpose

ORIGINAL POST

Posted by Ed 35 days ago
Modern realities frequently leave people feeling at best confused, at worst cynical and hopeless. In part, this is a reaction to specific concerns—job loss with globalization, terrorism, nuclear proliferation, climate change, and the erosion of familiar moral assumptions to name just a few.


But we also confront something more fundamental. More and more often today people describe themselves as feeling rudderless, adrift in an increasingly uncertain, contradictory and often absurd-seeming world. It is possible that the aimlessness that people feel is transitory, that if reflects but a blip in history.


But I suspect it reflects something more basic—and important. I speak of this as our modern Crisis of Purpose.
