Death is a universal certainty, yet most Americans’ interactions with it are limited to times of crisis. The Death Issue invites us to explore “a good death”—how to prepare ourselves
This issue asks us to move through the world differently as we travel, to more deeply consider the places we visit and the people who live there. You’ll get ideas for how to radicalize the trips you take so they do more to create a fairer exchange: by supporting local economies, building real relationships, protecting natural resources, and taking the time to learn the political and historical truth about these places.
Somewhere in time, humans’ natural relationship to soil became broken. This issue explores how communities are reconnecting to the earth and fixing the damage, turning lifeless dirt into fertile soil. By returning to a culture that loves its soil, we can grow healthy food and make it available to everyone. In turn, healthy soils will heal our bodies and the planet. It’s time to get dirty.
To fix this country’s rising inequality, we need to use the vast amount of wealth we have already—capital—in better ways than gambling on Wall Street and propping up capitalism’s favorite destructive industries. In this issue, we look at opportunities to invest in communities and improve people’s lives with our biggest pots of money—tax dollars, philanthropy endowments, and fossil fuel divestments.
Nearly 50 percent of Americans will experience a mental health disorder at some point in their lifetime. Anxiety, depression, and addiction are on the rise. Why? And what can we do about it? In this issue, we look at the culture, economics, and politics that play a significant role in everyone’s mental health, and the many community responses that are helping to heal us.
