1. It's ineresting that you took a "personal" disorder and elevated it to societal level

A psychiatrist over here, Dirk De Wachter, has written a well received and widely-read book about our entire society being borderline. He outlines how we as a society present each of the seven symptoms described in the DSM-IV.

Most noteworthy: the feeling of emptiness (solved by getting active, as you advocate) and low impulse control (like in impulse shopping - solved through sharing, repairing and if need be, "aware" shopping).

But to answer your question: this year, I'm spending a lot of time bringing the "larger" family back together, I've gotten involved in a municipal north-south solidarity council and I plan to resurrect Occupy activities in these parts.
