Imagine a World Without Fear
What would it be like to live in a world where no one has to worry about anything? A world where women are not hounded by men or beaten by the police, where immigrants are treated with compassion and no child is abused? Where every child is loved and accepted regardless of race or religion? A world where every government works to combat climate change and reduce the threat of war? That’s what I call “Imagine a World Without Fear.”
The idea that fear can be eliminated is so powerful that it can even prevent the development of many diseases. A person who is fearless by nature, as described in the book Imagine a World Without Fear (SM), will no longer experience the emotion of fear. Researchers have found about 400 individuals who suffer from the rare disorder known as Urbach-Wiethe disease, which causes hoarseness, small bumps around the eyes, and deposits in the brain.
SM was born fearless, and it faded away in her teens. This is important because fear is crucial for survival. In SM, she was able to feel nothing. Her scientists have discovered that this condition has a genetic cause and can cause small bumps around the eyes. The disease can be fatal, so a cure is needed. The SM was completely normal in every way, except for her inability to feel fear.
