A Colony In a Nation

Quote from the Chris Hayes Book:

” Imagine a button that when you push it gives you an all-encompassing feeling of security, the warm sense of being rooted and safe. But also when you push it somewhere, someone you don’t know, will experience the opposite a brief stab of anxiety, the wave of panic and fear.”

“You could press it whenever you needed that feeling, knowing full well someone else would pay the price. It’s tempting to want to feel safe and rooted. It’s tempting to want order and comfort, especially if it’s delivered free or the cost is paid out of view. But you would never press that button if it made your kids shriek in panic, or if it sent a friend or loved one into a paralyzing spiral of fear. You wouldn’t press it if you had to see the results.”
