No Fear or Have Fear: The Clash of Two Cultures

We are unfortunately living in a conscious less society. There is no fear. I remember when this ideology used to be the “it” slogan of the upcoming rebellious generation, when t-shirts and bumper stickers proudly proclaimed “NO FEAR”. However, for this same generation today, the slogan has become a way of life. It is no longer simply a proclaimed desired protest; it is a life of no fear, no consequence and therefore no consciousness. Indulgency are acceptable, lies are just and chivalry is no more.

Empathy is not an innate characteristic of humanity. It is something that has to be fostered from an early age. Yet, when care is not learn and understanding of others desires, sadness, and pain is not comprehended, there becomes confusion.

In this post-modern society of the 21st century, we are faced with a clash of two cultures. There is a struggle of one culture not understanding why the other doesn’t understand and the other culture truly not having the ability to understand. The only thing to be feared is not fear itself, but rather a world with no fear. This is a world of savages seeking only to meet selfish desires; one which will knock down the other to be superior. There is no care, no giving and no empathy. For those who say “No Fear”, I say “Have Fear” or society will be no more.
