This book describes the dark shift to the political right as it manifests globally, analyzing this from an alchemical and depth psychological perspective. Along the way, it explores the projections that are occurring consciously and unconsciously within the leaders and the populations of a host of nations in Europe, America and Asia. It specifically discusses how we as individuals can become more conscious of the psycho-dynamic factors at work, and thus avoid becoming possessed by them.When you distill tyranny down to its base elements, you always find the same rancid ingredients; hate, fear, doubt, anger, racism, Antisemitism, anti-immigration, and a demonization of anything 'other;' a pure and utter unconscious projection of the shadow. When this is being consciously promoted by authoritarian rulers around the world, including the likes of Vladimir Putin, Donald Trump, and Victor Orban, it is nothing less than incarnated evil. Our problem, at its root, is not political but rather moral and spiritual in nature.William K. Grevatt is an educator and Jungian analyst who lives and works in Los Angeles, California.
