Organized Lovelessness

Huxley: too much on his mind

In his 1945 book, The Perennial Philosophy, Aldous Huxley wrote, “Our present economic, social and international arrangements are based, in large measure, upon organized lovelessness.”

Some things just never change.  And some get worse.

The good news?  Some kinds of organized lovelessness have dwindled since 1945, albeit too slowly, such as institutional racism and sexism.  (Sectarianism overall yet thrives.)

In the end, money is, always has been, and hopefully won’t always be the most organized way to conduct lovelessness.  I even use it to be loveless toward myself.  It is such an efficient means.

Just contemplating things from a little light reading in some old notes taken several years ago during the study of an old book.
