"Long Arrival", charcoal, Tim Holmes
One of the great ironies of the story is that they rejected heading toward the nearest islands, which they'd heard were peopled with cannibals. So instead they embarked on a much longer journey for which they hadn't enough food. So when they ran out of food they ended up eating their fellows. Turns out their fears caused they themselves to become the cannibals they so foolishly tried to avoid!
We are not two kinds of people, though our history and our psyches would have us believe there are those bad guys and then there's us. Now that Carl Jung and like psychologists have revealed the principles of projection– where we project our unacceptable characteristics on others– we are challenged with the reality that we carry our monsters within us. That simple knowledge alone will be enough to save our skin, but only if we can learn to embrace these, our own dark monsters.
Issues like terrorism, gun control and drone use become extremely difficult because all our senses tell us our demons are in the other guy. We'll never figure it out and be forever condemned to a world of war until we become willing to peer within. Perhaps then we can move forward.
