“The wounds that mass society inflicts on the individual are real indicators of the dominant lie. The individual’s lack of integration into his or her environment is literally traumatic: the loss of common references, anonymity and fear lead to the collapse of socialisation, a lack of solidarity, a neurotic desire for safety, extremely dysfunctional behaviour and to everything which paves the pathological way for bulimia, anorexia, addiction, compulsive consumption, hypochondria, stress, depression and other modern syndromes”.
