Revisiting a paper on Fear I wrote for Journal of Curriculum and Pedagogy 7 (2), 2010. pp. 45-7, and concerning which I received no response in print or by post:

We hold in our hands the literary machines for which we have striven for a generation and for which past generations longed. We should use them without fear, and if we cannot, we should take care that the children do not see the irrational fears we cannot control but of which we are, or should be, ashamed.
