History of Helplessness

As a metaphor, vulnerability expresses the idea that communities lack the emotional and psychological resources necessary to deal with change, to make choices, or to deal with adversity…The emergence of vulnerability as an identity is linked with the objectification of fear, which first started occurring in the 1980s.

—Frank Furedi
The only thing we have to fear is the ‘culture of fear’ itself
