Epidemics of our age

Caught up in the busy-ness of our times, many people have the sense of being trapped on a treadmill, pressured in both their private and working lives, and troubled by a feeling that it will never be possible to catch up with time.

They may respond with sensations of panic or by blocking off all sensations; they may experience tremendous stress, confusion, and tension, or fall back into cynicism and a restless search for new forms of entertainment.

Anxiety, depression, and low self-esteem are the epidemics of our age, as pervasive and in some ways as deadly as the epidemics that ravaged whole populations in other times and places.
