freedom to choose recoils in anxiety of change

never in human history have individuals been freer to choose their life path, their values, and to serve what is true for them.

what is most exploited, in every country, every culture, every religious or political hegemony under the onslaught of change — is how much of the blow-back is fueled by human psychopathology. That is, how much cultural tension, conflict, and frenzy arise out of the anxiety of change, of ambiguity, of evolution, of eroded “certainties”

the moral measure of a culture is found in the degree to which individuals and groups can tolerate ambiguity and change and how open they can be to the otherness of others
