The Grotto and Research
I've bene doing research on how various cultures cultivate fear. I'm, of course, especially interested in my own. I ordered the books, Age of Anxiety and The Culture of Fear to try and get a handle on the phenomena. Talking about "fear" maturely is difficult to do because alarm, anxiety, and aprehension are the three A's of just about any argument. To simply write about the "culture of fear" is to argue that people should be frightened about it (or that there is nothing to be afraid of). All persuasive writing seeks to arouse at least a small degree of panic. It seems that the language of fear increases proportionally to the importance of persuasion.

Here's some images from last night, hanging out at the Grotto in downtown SLC.
