These days, everyone feels insecure. We are financially precarious, overwhelmed and anxious, and worried about the future. While millions endure the stress of struggling to make ends meet, in reality, the status quo isn’t working for anyone, even the affluent and comparatively privileged; they, too, are deeply insecure.

The Age of Insecurity exposes how seemingly disparate crises — our suffering mental health and rising inequality, the ecological emergency, and the threat of fascism — are tied to the fact that our social order runs on insecurity. Across disparate sectors, from policing and the military to the wellness and beauty industries, the systems that promise us security instead actively undermine it.

The Age of Insecurity sheds new light on our contemporary predicament, exposing the psychological and political costs of the insecurity-generating status quo, while proposing ways to forge a new path forward.
