On New Age as Consumer Manifest Destiny

From Felicity Carter, former astrologer, in The Guardian:

[I’d understood organised religion to be something between an embarrassment and an evil. Yet as Aids did its dreadful work – this was the 1990s – I watched nuns offer compassionate care to the dying. Christian volunteers checked on derelict men with vomit down their clothes. I became uncomfortably aware that New Agers do not build hospitals or feed alcoholics – they buy self-actualisation at the cash register.]{style="background-color:white;color:#121212;font-family:"font-size:17px;font-variant-ligatures:common-ligatures;"}
