Our world is filled with horrifying problems, and many people are experiencing depression and discouragement. More and more are suicidal, especially in the Western world. Even the foreign policy of America and other nations has become very timid and fearful. What is wrong here?
Consider this profound observation from British Foreign Secretary Anthony Eden in 1938 in the lead-up to the Second World War. “Hatred of war is good. It is sane and it is healthy,” he said. “But fear of war is not so good, for fear of war paralyzes the will, and no policy that is based upon fear, no policy which makes an appeal to fear, can be a policy that this country should follow.”
