We live in an age of “small terror,” as the New York Times columnist David Brooks recently called it, referring to the way localized, unpredictable acts of violence create a sense of anxiety. It feels like there are no safe places anymore. Even in other aspects of life, we are challenged by other fears. Can we truly live peacefully in a diverse society? With all the information made available to us today, are we able to make the right choices? In work or school, we may face an ever greater sense of competition over camaraderie. How can we express ourselves without the fear of saying something wrong, of missing that perfect opportunity or negatively affecting our future possibilities?
