Jung discusses his concerns for the world in regard to communism, nuclear weapons, and the fragile state of democracy. Most troubling to Jung are the ever-increasing proclivity to mass-mindedness, and the eradication of the individual by the “State”.
Written decades ago, this brilliant work has more impact than ever in today’s world, where many of Jung’s concerns have come to fruition. The informed listener will, no doubt, find Jung’s predictions, and assessment of human nature, spookily accurate.
Note: this is my second narration of this essay. The original narration of it was my first narration ever, and I believe this one to be a considerable improvement over the first.
