Defined as "an extended period of insecurity and instability", permacrisis apparently epitomizes the "dizzying sense of lurching from one unprecedented event to another as people wonder what new horrors might be around the corner."
In my opinion, permacrisis is the perfect word to describe the post-2020 "given world"-- that heavy, burdensome, stifling, un-creative, impersonal, stultifying, terrorizing, oppressive, objectified world that demands unconditional obedience and submission to its obscuring of Reality.
The word fits because crisis has become the default setting of the given world, which will intentionally remain in crisis mode until it is eventually overwhelmed by the perma-crises it willfully generates, implements, and foments.
Those who remain obedient and submissive to the dictates and machinations of the given world will experience and live the "reality" of permacrisis in the same way they experienced and lived the "reality" of the one of the given world's Words of 2021 -- vax.
While permacrisis suits the "reality" of the given world, it is not an accurate definition of Reality -- more precisely, God's Creation.
Permacrisis does not and cannot exist in Creation. What exists in Creation is creation itself -- the acts, thoughts, and processes of ongoing and open creativity inspired and motivated by love, hope, and freedom between and among Beings.
Permacrisis may be the given world's Word of the Year for 2022, but it does not apply and cannot be applied to God's Creation. To do so would be a category error.
The only way to overcome the given world and its Words of the Year is to become aware of Creation and begin to think and "live" the reality of permacreation.
