OK, I’ve got two questions and to be honest, it germinated with thoughts on my up-and-coming essay on “The Duel”, but bear with me.
What’s the worst thing that can happen to you? Is it Death, dishonor, loss of friends and/or family, loneliness, betrayal, … or something else. The second question is related, how do you think most people would answer that question?
I have a suspicion that unlike previous era’s, this age finds Death the ultimate bugbear. But, I turn this over to the floor. What happenstance do you fear the most?
I was going to write an essay on this tonight, but I decided I’d take a “poll” first, on what my gentle readers think the answer is first … and then I’ll ponder out loud (as it were) on that topic.
