“The Inner Level” – Linking Distress and Our Current System


From The Alternative UK: Rod Tweedy’s book The Political Self, as well as a new book due out in 2018, The Inner Level, discuss the ways mental and emotional distress are created by modern capitalism.

“Based on an equally impressive range of data and analysis, The Inner Level now shows the impact inequality has on individuals: how it affects us psychologically, makes social relations more stressful, undermines self-confidence and distorts natural differences in personal abilities. It demonstrates that societies based on fundamental equalities, sharing and reciprocity produce much higher levels of wellbeing than those based on excessive individualism, competitiveness and social aggression. Like its predecessor, The Inner Level will transform ideas of how we should organise the way we live together.”
