Cult of Safetyism.

Safetyism is the cult of safety–an obsession with eliminating threats (both real and imagined) to the point at which people become unwilling to make reasonable trade-offs demanded by other practical and moral concerns. Safetyism deprives young people of the experiences that their antifragile minds need, thereby making them more fragile, anxious, and prone to see themselves as victims.

I started noticing this about 5 years ago. People started ending their emails or phone calls with “stay safe” or “BE safe”.

I always tell them that the last thing I want is to BE safe.

To the contrary, I choose to LIVE dangerously.
