An uncertain economy, changing demographics and shifting social norms all contribute to a growing, almost palpable anxiety about difference– of the lack of difference — acts as a powerful force that re-inscribes social separation and even isolation for individuals and their communities. ¬†Perhaps something more fundamental is driving this disquiet. ¬†Perhaps we are uneasy with an uncertain world that might not just threaten our way of life, but also our sense of who we are.
