Why Our Culture Makes So Many of Us Unhappy
Our Society Goes Against Human Nature

The essence of human nature has been debated by philosophers down the ages. Some say humans are innately good, others disagree.  But what we know today, is that we are wired for connection, generosity, love, and universality.

Whatever conditions interfere with this create dysfunction. “A society that goes against human nature, is what creates our suffering.” Addiction specialist, Dr. Gabor Maté, says our society tramples on what it means to be a human and that this is the essence of our unhappiness.

Here he explains why it is that our culture makes so many of us unhappy, unkind to one another, and alienated from ourselves.
