It seems we can’t get away from this subject... Wisdom by Carl Jung.
I have been trying to adopt this way of thought recently and it’s really interesting to watch your own thoughts when you’re about to blame somebody, accuse them of something, perhaps remind them that something they have done, or that they have the potential to do something bad. Ha! And we speak in this manner as though we have not acted in the same way in the past, told lies before, as though we have full restraint and control over our behaviour and we are not influenced by impulse. We like to think if we were in the same situation; “I would’ve acted differently”. Yeah. Interesting.
Before wondering why a particular situation has happened, I will now ask myself, “Have I acted in a similar way before?”. Answer: Yes (Generally the case).
If I haven’t acted in the same way before, I ask this: “Have I experienced an impulse to act in a similar way?”. I generally find the answer to be yes.
If you answer, “No” to both, you’re either around a very dangerous person or perhaps you’re naive. I’d go with the latter.
Empathy works well. When I confront ‘darkness’ in myself, before dealing with other people, it becomes clearer. This doesn’t make the actions right but it gives me reason.

The End of Babies. New York Times Opinion written by Anna Louie Sussman outlines the factors affecting the decreased fertility rates worldwide. She highlights how these factors affect fertility rates even in countries like Denmark which should be an idyllic environment for reproduction. Denmark has a strong economy, strong social system with free education and generous family leave and less gender inequality. Still the Danes’ reproduction rates are lower than the rate needed to replenish the population.
She cites the following factors affecting fertility worldwide:
• global economy with late capitalism
• social factors including workism and capitalist values of individualism and self-actualization • financial with belief of the inflated costs of raising a child competitive in the world market
• environmental “degeneration of our environment in ways that hardly encourage childbearing: Chemicals and pollutants seep into our bodies, disrupting our endocrine systems”
• gender inequality
