There are psychologists, sociologists and political scientists who are trying to study and make sense of the rising disillusionment globally. There is a growing GenZ Internet sub-culture that embraces the idea of being ‘delulu’ and accepts disarray as a natural state of affairs. While this might seem novel and uncharted, if you speak to a historian you will realise that is now new. This is not the first time that we also a collective are going through a period of rapid change and uncertainty.
In this context, Robert Peckham’s writings on History and Fear become a great place to understand our futures.
