6 Forgotten? Trends of 2015

2BrokeReedsIce2_1365
1. Diabetes type 1 (Barn diabetes, not related to diet.)
The spread of this deadly (if not treated with daily doses of insulin) disease has reached pandemic proportions and is increasing with a whopping 5% per year worldwide. Researchers are agreed that environmental factors trigger the mechanism that knocks out the ability produce insulin, but don’t know which factors.
As insulin is one of the oldest, smallest and most basic proteins among the thousands we produce daily, disrupting this little chemical structure sounds danger to the clan of humanity.

2. Suicides
Never before in the history of humanity has the rate of suicides—throughout the world—clocked in at the present proportions. ”Something is happening here, but you don’t know what it is. Do you, Mr. Jones?” (Bob Dylan)
Mr. Jones would be helped by Wilkinson and Pickett’s book about inequality The Spirit Level.

3. Slavery
In American private prisons, in trafficking, in sweat shops and in debt servitude pure and de facto slavery thrives and is growing. Everywhere. How many need to go under before we can overcome?

4. Rape
Running a similar upward course as suicides and slavery, rape climbs the graph. If the rulers of the world show little respect for anything other than money and power, respect for people becomes diluted and men’s respect for women deteriorates. This is as alarming for the condition of humanity as the growth of diabetes type 1. Men are biologically programmed to protect women. The rape rate clearly indicates serious damage to the human psyche.

5. Love
Love is taking quite a beating. Hate rages out of control and divorces, broken relationships and loneliness develop along an upward curve. Not only are there many more lonely people now than when the Beatles asked where all the lonely people come from, but loneliness and alienation within relationships—sticking together of necessity—inflicts all too many people under the radar of statistics.

6. Awareness
One of the most powerful trends of our day, and one of the most positive, moves like a tide under a full moon onto the shores of human consciousness. More and more people are realizing that those who are in control are out of control. No one doubts that a great storm is approaching. Great storms tend to blow down the old and spread the new.
Bring it on!
