When fear is a sign of weakness

EXCELLENT news! Liz Jones and her team are now able to trace any educational problem to its source.

All those psychological and sociological problems which have defeated great minds for generations: all solved. I was going to suggest that she be made Emeritus Professor of Social Sciences at one of our elite univesities.

However, thinking about the last society in which all outward signs of fear from the "weak" were understood as confirmation of their inward guilt, I'm sure she aspires to leadership in a far larger arena.
