Justifiable Disaffection or Misunderstanding!?

So as usual, I was sitting and thinking, in addition to walking and trying to define the word “disaffection”, in terms of past, current experiences and events, in many parts of the world, plus here.
Attempting to fathom motives of persons of varying ages, gender, nationality, religious persuasion, psychological mindset and countries in their directions and hence undertakings.
What were, are and might be the propelling circumstances involving these declarative behaviors?
Was it, as Malcolm X stated, “The chickens are coming home to roost.”, or were and are there other factors leading toward perceived or realistic revelations, which lead and led many toward eventual gloom and possible doom?
Or perhaps victory? Success, self-fulfillment or...?
How were and are a variety of societies impacting upon individuals, encouraging and forcing them to the conclusion, that their needs and dreams had not only been deferred, but eliminated and were perhaps non-existent before their existence began?
What is to be interpreted and understood from these historical occurrences and how are these moments in time to be addressed, in order to arrive at the most constructive possibilities in addressing the perceived and realistic needs of humankind?
Of course, we are always confronted with the political, psychological, economic and continued desire for dominance, which has existed since the inception of individuals bearing the capability and responsibility of free will.
Discussing, educating and identifying the means towards developing a balance of interests and needs between individuals and societies, is a long sought and ongoing process, shadowing and sometimes momentarily interfering with human development.
Analyzing and attempting contributions towards balancing human interests is a long sought quest and continues today and hopefully is supported at this moment in the
Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin and elsewhere in the world.
Today, world-over and including Fountainhead® Tanz Théâtre’s history, are continuing efforts of contributors in association with colleagues, friends and supporters, to aspire towards goals of transnational, intercultural societies, which define and demonstrate themselves as seeking to utilize resources toward the needs of their and other societies.
Constructing always, with the goal in mind of justice and societal advancement as our primary focus, we shall continue striving towards peace on earth, goodwill to all humankind.
Thank You!
