The wrecked car
In recovery acceptance of the facts is the first step to start to deal with the problems. The first step to head in a better direction. In politics it seems to be more: “fake it till you make it”. Pretend you have the solutions, pretend there is no climate problem, no pollution, endangered species, no starvation, no alternative
In psychology pretending everything is well is called denial, in business and politics they call it strategy. Strange how these things can look so different, depending on if you are a doctor, or a spin doctor.
