The belief that the human condition is inherently ‘unsafe’ is the fundamental creed of the cult of safety, which has solidified itself in our society.

In the last few decades safety has, in the words of Furedi, taken on a “quasi-religious quality”.

An abundance of safety rules and restrictions are not making people feel safer; they are contributing to our culture of fear.

In some of the most flourishing civilisations of the past, fear was counterbalanced by hope and by an optimistic belief in the human potential.

Humanity must learn to find and manage that balance once again.
