    is the political monasticism that Berman describes and which I mentioned in my comment above.  It involves intentionality and meaningfulness and appeals to greater numbers as the self-destruction proceeds.  It's a way to generate the feeling of community once again and to combat what Berman sees as our greatest difficulty - a society in danger of losing its humanity.
