The problem would be that we have ceased to be afraid and no longer understand the fear that history produced in humans during their own lives.

"Fear doesn't travel well; just as it can warp judgment, its absence can diminish

memory's truth. What terrifies one generation is likely to bring only a puzzled smile to the next."
