Why Travel When The World Is Getting Scarier?
When my wife and I describe our upcoming tandem trip, many people say, “Be careful! The world is crazier than it ever used to be!”
I guess a California postal worker could gun us down.
A Mexican drug lord could bury us in a sandbox.
A Jihadist terrorist could blow up our bike.
It could happen. But the world isn’t getting more dangerous.
Instead, I fear the media. The media promotes paranoia. It supports fear.
We have data to prove that the world has never been safer.
