Chill Out, America

 

There is a fantastic piece by Foreign Policy out that you really need to read, especially if you’re an American.  Living in Israel gives you a very healthy perspective on what it truly means to live life with “existential risk” every single day.  The truth is, we are sold this fear in America.  We do not need to buy it, as it largely does not exist.

There are so many great quotes from the article that I could paste here, but I will pick just one:

“If you look at the past 25 years or so, it is abundantly clear that external enemies have done far less damage to the United States than we have done to ourselves.”

Read the piece by Foreign Policy, and stop buying fear.
