Dealing with fear

"Dealing with fear is the central moral question we have to deal with. If you think of moral questions as not being about principles but more [about] moral sentiment... in other words...
How do I live with empathy as opposed to alienation?
How do I live with a sense of my own value as opposed to a feeling of deficiency?
How do I live n a spirit of hope instead of fear?
How to be in the world and capable of moral engagement with other human beings..."

~ Marshall Gans interview with Bill Moyers, aired on PBS on May 1, 2013
