A question I received: What is a regular crisis, and how does the current crisis differ from previous ones?
My Answer: A regular, classic crisis is caused by overproduction, where a decrease in demand causes a decrease in production, which results in a rise of unemployment and decrease in income. This in turn causes further decrease in demand. One thing leads to another until this downward spiral contracts to a point.
The current crisis is different because it was not caused by overproduction, but by the revelation of our global egoism. We have reached the ceiling of our individual egoistic development, and the only way we can develop from here on is by improving the connection between us, rather than by advancing individually.
