A New Articulation ….

“In as much as collectives are mere accumulations of individuals, their problems are also accumulations of individual problems … Such problems are never solved by legislation or tricks. They are only solved by a general change of attitude. And the change does not begin with propaganda and mass meetings, or with violence. It begins with a change in individuals. It will continue as a transformation of their personal likes and dislikes, of their outlook on life and of their values, and only the accumulation of such individual changes will produce a collective solution.” (C. G. Jung, Psychology & Religion (New Haven and London: Yale University Press, 1938) 95.)

What Carl Jung saw 78 years ago is now fully landed in the global culture of Mankind. What this description identifies is the insanity of the partisan political system that keeps promising a central articulation that it says can deliver for the electorates that vote for governance to be enacted upon themselves from within such a system. In fact there is no further legislation, threat of violence be it financial or physical, propaganda or mass movement party that can lead anybody, anywhere, anymore. That is what Jung said. That is what he meant to say. That is what was true then. That is what is true now.

Articulation is the key to the future forms of leadership that will evolve out of the recovery processes soon to be embarked upon by the executive functions of Mankind.

An articulated lorry gives the clue.

An articulated lorry is supremely versatile, can pull very heavy loads with great manoeuvrability, can unhitch the power source quickly from one project and hitch it onto another very easily. The tractor units can work together to clear many trailers, but they are autonomous. The trailers can be full of issues that where hitherto the property of only one side of the old political divide, but in the future such divisions will be seen to be secondary to the primary ability of actually having the traction to move the trailers to a required destination.

Quite simply, the Era Change is one of Leadership Change, the way that Leadership is articulated to the led, the way that problems are articulated to the solution mechanisms of Mankind, the way that power is articulated through material forms for The Human as beings.
