Love Will Win
This conclusion revisits the notions of harm, vulnerability, and creatureliness to think about creative ways to resolve anxiety and heal the harmful dynamics that currently exist in America. Reflecting on songs and poetry, it asks the powerful to recognize how easily possession of power subordinates the vulnerable and marginalized. In our creatureliness, we are vulnerable and fear harm—this compounds our anxiety. We have a choice in how we respond to our anxiety—we can either be destructive or we can be creative by looking for ways that we can flourish alongside an Other’s flourishing. Creativity in this way is deeply relational, wanting the best for the Other, of recognizing that we are all in community together—whether this is community in the everyday sense of neighbors and relatives or community in the larger international spectrum.
