Depersonalization is a psychological pathology in which people feel as though they are not truly at one with themselves. They feel dislodged from the drivers’ seats of their lives, as if watching themselves in a movie. America, as a nation, seems to be displaying similar pathology—wrenched from patriotism, with vanishing borders, with calls to remove all police, with self-hatred for our national identity. These are circumstances in which what binds us together can dissolve, leading to extreme infighting between races, genders and those of different sexual orientations. It’s time to use the pain of these times to find our power, again, as a people.
