Ecopsychology aka humans go mental without nature
Yeah so it seems the thing that humans adore quarrying, colonising, killing and damaging the most is infact the key to stopping this ongoing mental decay of the western world. Duh. I wonder how many indigenous cultures are shaking their heads right now at this 'modern realisation'.
What is ecopsychology? A slightly flawed adbusters article a few months ago touched on the subject. Although the mag promotes a certain political-apathy 'the world will be fine, just go bush and peace out' mentality in the story, at least the author acknowledges and sparks an American debate on the well-overdue subject ie. man is often healed by nature better than many other psychological therapies... and we should foster it for this reason alone...
