Description
Furedi predicts that until society finds a more positive orientation the politicisation of fear by a variety of interests, parties and individuals will flourish. Fear has become detached from its material and physical source and appears to be singularly effective in influencing people’s behaviour. Society is led to believe that the threats it faces are incalculable and cannot be controlled or regulated, the acceptance of which is paralleled by the cultivation of helplessness and passivity and results in a redefinition of personhood.
