A “Two-Front” War

The oppressive society that surrounds us pressures us in thousands of ways to be inaccurate in our thinking. It offers us inaccurate information and holds out selfish, uncooperative, competitive motivations and encourages us to think them desirable. We conduct a “two-front” war—against the unintelligent distress patterns that have been inflicted upon us and against the pseudo-reality that the environment, through its culture, pushes at us.
