"What a Way to Go" is a total rejection of the self-destruction paradigm that hard-wires Amerian culture. Brutal honesty is applied to issues of our day. ␣ ␣ But these aren't just issues of our day; they are issues of the universe because the planet itself is becoming altered before our eyes toward unending extinction. It is clear we are caught in a broken myth of progress and technology, expecting those cultural bulwarks to save us even though they caused the crisis: climate chaos, petrocollapse and individual isolation and despair.
