If you want to improve the world, start by making people feel safer.
– Stephen Porges
This is so simple and so essential.
Since I am from Scandinavia, I feel that good social safety nets are crucial for helping people feel safer and through that reduce a lot of other individual, social, and even ecological problems. When we feel safer, we are able to broaden our circle of concern, keep the larger picture in mind, and act in a more sane and sensible way.
