Post Mental Illness
It seems humanity approaches a cliff... Wonder what the percentage is in the USA.

Nearly 40 percent of Europeans suffer mental illness

Post The wound of the Fisher King
Jean Markale :

<<Why Merlin accepted the enclosure? Because he understood that living outside of Nature, is to turn to destruction. Right in the twelfth century, when already beginning to draw the profile of capitalism in the new towns delivered to the exclusive power of money, the figure of Merlin was a warning. The bourgeoisie, on the road to triumph, rebuilt, sheltered behind walls, a world in its position, where the main building was no longer the Church, but the Town Hall, the principal location, either the cemetery, a symbol of the communion of the living and the dead, but the market place. A people who reject their dead on the outside of the city wall and leaves the sacred shrine to the Temple of Fortune was abruptly cut from its roots. And cut off from his roots, he does not know how to use nature. He believes the knowledge-exploitation: by clearing forests, digging mines, killing animals, destroying the ecological landscape. The aberrations of the twentieth century are already contained in the process of society from the twelfth century .[...] We regret that the world becomes sterile and are desperately seeking a cure for this terrifying evil. But the poets of the twelfth century had already understood not only by developing the theme of Merlin, but with emphasis on the description of the Kingdom of the Grail: because of the wound of the Fisher King,the lands of the kingdom are sterile and no trees produce more fruit. >>

Thomas Moore :

<< When the world will regain its soul, we discover that the place is enchanted and not a dead body imagined by the reductionist eloquently through their science and technology. To maintain this enchantment necessary, we must learn from the past, of ancient peoples and their practices and learn to make altars, saint place, to create space for storytelling, contemplation, to erect temples and temenos. >>

"European" wound = Frodo's wound
"American" wound = Jake Sully's wound

I think it's the same problem : Avatar and Lords of the ring are the "same" story.
