Il calcolo della paura

We come from months in which fear has understandably dominated the horizon of every human emotion. Marco Filoni, tracing its history from Hobbes to the Dpcms, between motion of the soul and political control, draws an unexpected portrait of the “good use of fear.”
For we need not be ashamed of being afraid: we must, however, have respect for it, for only by knowing what makes us fearful can we understand our anxieties. If we delegate our fear to others in exchange for the illusion of limitless security, we will only be giving up our freedom-among others, the freedom to be afraid-in favor of a new fear, terror.
