    Article

    What we face today is not just a "crisis" in the normal sense of the word - "a time of intense difficulty or danger".

This refers to a turning point in the course of an illness, pointing either to the start of recovery or the imminence of death. Such an understanding of "crisis" implies a relatively brief moment between two possible outcomes, a good one and a bad one. The deep social, economic and political problems of our times, however, are not signs of a passing "moment" or a single issue; they rather signal a multi-faceted crisis, whose components all strengthen and reinforce each other.
