Fast Food (2015): Second Helping

“Anxiety is the mark of spiritual insecurity. It is the fruit of unanswered questions. But questions cannot go unanswered unless they first be asked. So there is a far worse anxiety, a far worse insecurity, which comes from being afraid to ask the right questions—because they might turn out to have answers we do not like. One of the moral diseases we communicate to one another comes from huddling together in the pale light of an insufficient answer to a question we are afraid to ask.”
