This is an audio version of Making Sense of the Downward Spiral, Daniel Schmachtenberger which was published on the Rebel Wisdom YouTube site May 25th 2020.
America's cities are ablaze with rioting after the killing of George Floyd in Minneapolis. This comes in the heightened tensions of the coronavirus crisis. How can we make sense of this spiral of polarisation, and are bad actors taking advantage of the situation?
