How a Rhetoric of Fear Increasingly Shapes Our Culture and Politics, Part II: Open Forum

This open forum follows a talk by Sasha Abramsky scheduled for November 7. Mr. Abramsky will be speaking on the topic of irrational fear from his new book, 'Jumping at Shadows: The Triumph of Fear and the End of the American Dream'. On November 7, Mr. Abramsky will explore how the fear-based frame that we, the public, use to understand a range of complex issues—from terrorism to disease, parenting to vaccinations—has a ricochet effect throughout our economy, our culture, and our politics.
