This summer season of contrived “terror” and “rage” has left many wondering whether the world has gone completely mad and whether chaos is the new normal.

There have been so many “terrorist” attacks – or apparent ones – in the past couple of months in the U.S., France, Germany, and Japan that it’s hard to keep up (and we’re not even counting the serious violence in Syria, Iraq, Bangladesh, and other countries we’re conditioned not to care much (more…)
