The age of loneliness is killing us – George Monbiot

http://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2014/oct/14/age-of-loneliness-killing-us

Powerful piece by George Monbiot in the Guardian on how cultural structures, norms and values are eroding our sense of personhood, belonging, interconnection, and denying us the one essential condition if we are to thrive – love. Thanks to Christa Mackinnon on Facebook for steering us this way.
