If you would be interested to watch a study of Western supremacism and of how vast the gulf is between the focused, manipulative self-centredness of late capitalism and what has been cut away from the human spirit to acquire this – its deep connectedness to others and to the world – I highly recommend the documentary ‘Sherpa.’
