Ms. Cobban sets out to describe the present shape of American and its place in the world. In doing so she, like so many others before her, tries to break down subject/object dualism. Let me explain. Our world view is that each of us are individual beings, subjects, while everything, and every one, outside of ourselves is separate, objects. This is the dominate Christian Dogma. Another world view would be that we are all part of a big whole. We are all connected in one great big soul rather than each having a different and separate soul. This notion is nothing new: the Buddhists see it in their sense of "Oneness", The Gnostic Christians have the idea of "Enlightenment", Emmanuel Kant developed his "Transcendental Ego", Emerson wrote about "The Oversoul", Jung used his notion of "The Collective Unconsciousness" in his work, and William James talked about it in his theory of experience.
"Global Control versus Global Inclusion" is the new paradigm. We as American need to stop seeing the world as something to go out and conquer but as something to circle around and view ourselves as an equal part of a greater whole. It compels us to take care of that "whole" as are taking care of ourselves at the same time. Attacking someone would theoretically be like deliberately shooting yourself in the foot. At bit of a stretch, but think about it.Read more ›
