These fictional lives we lead online are our version of Marx’s alienation. We build social relations with people whose hand we never shake, whose eyes we never meet and whose trust we’ll never gain.

In this first chapter of The Blueprint for a New World we go deep into the minds of nations and people ... diagnosing the roots of geopolitical madness, societal schizophrenia and ecological sociopathy. American psychosis, Israel's PTSD, France's depression, Canada's coming-of-age-crisis and Australia's impenetrable denial. Then, we go one step deeper and pull back the bandages on the festering psychic wounds of our intimate lives. But will we, as a civilization, make it from breakdown to breakthrough?
