The Pretending everything is well complex

The wrecked car

In recovery acceptance of the facts is the first step to start to deal with the problems. The first step to head in a better direction. In politics it seems to be more: “fake it till you make it”.  Pretend you have the solutions, pretend there is no climate problem, no pollution, endangered species, no starvation, no alternative

Wrecked car and a guy saying to hell with the car, just make it look like we are still on the road
First step is recognizing the problems

In psychology pretending everything is well is called denial, in business and politics they call it strategy. Strange how these things can look so different, depending on if you are a doctor, or a spin doctor.
