Culture is the primary driving force in human affairs—not ideology, not technology, and not “them.” I, like so many of us, want the world to change in ways that can enable it to work better in support of life, joy, love, and creativity. In spite of this, we have taken ourselves to the darkest edge, doing enormous damage to every form of life across our Earth, including ourselves. In both cases, it’s the work of the cultures we produce. At no point in our history has it been as necessary as now to learn how to use our cultures so that they serve, more and more, the welfare of life, and damage it less and less. I believe this makes understanding how culture works muy importante.
