"All extremism, fanaticism, and obscurantism come from a lack of security. A person who is secure cannot be an extremist."

Rabbi Joseph B. Soloveitchik

It is good to reflect, what is security?  

It is certainly not merely economic security, especially not in the midst of the arising-passing impermanence of life-death. 

Lack of security is often another side of fear.

What is fear?

What is being no-fear? 

What is giving no-fear?

(c) 2011 Elihu Genmyo Smith
