In our generation we tend to use language in a way that trivializes concepts that have immense historicity, narrative weight, and conceptual importance. Love is certainly one. The notion of a hero is another. I contend that a properly anti-fragile worldview must contain a heroic self conception. We must view ourselves – at least in part – as heroes engaged in an act of overcoming the hardships and tragedies of life. A balanced and well thought out worldview is absolutely indispensable here, because there are all manner of causes and belief structures where the appeal of being a hero can become warped and perverted in a way that engenders evil. Not all villains see themselves as such.

God bless,
