I believe that one of the biggest examples of separation syndrome in our lives is how we have such a profound disposability consciousness in this culture. I use the example of when you say youre gonna throw something away Where is away? Theres no such thing! Where away actually lies is in a series of social justice issues and environmental justice issues. Every plastic bag, plastic cup, plastic to-go container represents the petroleum complex in Africa, Ecuador, Columbia, Alaska or you name it!
