Soul Care–Do We Think We Can Survive War?

Yesterday I shared the link to Arno Gruen’s “War or Peace:  We Cannot Survive With Real Politic.”  Today I’m wondering if you read it and what you thought of it—I saw no comments on it. 

I know we’re all focused on surviving COVID-19, but I wonder nevertheless if we think or care about how we are going to survive war.  

Gruen’s writings on “the insanity of normality” speak to our culture of obedience and dominating power.  We have made obedience to (government and other) voices claiming authority and the global practice of dominating power (war) normal.  Gruen says we cannot survive this.

What do you think?
