Collective Traumatisation

Change is the only constant, but change can be painful. As a consequence of change, we all experience trauma. For your information, the term dates back to ancient Greece, where it was used to denote a psychic wound that causes abnormal levels of stress.
As a rule, the quality of life determines the quantity and extent of trauma inflicted in any society. Our global community is no exception. The basic principles of behaviour are not subject to change, as they are a byproduct of universal laws. Some may be based on physiological factors, such the species-biology, planet class, atmospheric composition… [how’d we end up in this science fiction conspiracy thriller known as reality?!]

However, what are the most common trigger points of change in modern society? Perhaps you may think it is the devaluation of currency or economic enslavement of countries under a fascistic regime…and you’d be right. Maybe you ponder whether it is the suppression of truth and thereby the restriction of our freedom on an international scale…and again you’d be right.

Those are the trigger points of the most gravitas, which change society for good. Yet, these large scale events cannot occur, unless smaller changes precede them.

For example, when racial segregation was first implemented, it did not begin overnight. The tension festered.

For example, the law(s)[1] of entropy, triggering the process of ageing.
in turn disorder leads to death.
