Why is Happytalism key to reconnection? We live in a divided world. And not just politically. The world economy is creating winners and losers, with no clear way to prosperity for millions of people. The last couple of decades have produced great inequality of wealth and, with it, unequal access to the reins of power. We are separated along local, regional, and borderlines, and we are divided into rural and urban parts. We increasingly struggle with differences of class, race, and religion. But the polarization doesn’t stop here. We are also divided politically and ideologically. Race wars, abortion, same-sex marriage, poverty, the use and abuse of power, environmental protection – you name it. The political parties worldwide play a more important role in how people vote and how they think about political issues than we imagine. And the news is no help in that matter. These political, economic, and other polarizations are a clear result of us becoming more and more separated from ourselves, from others, and our planet. So what can we, as humans, do about this?
