In our age of anxiety and anticipation, driven as much by possibility as it is by the threats of unknown violence, we might ask, indeed must ask: where is the love?

Social media can close gaps of time and space by conjuring fantasies of intimacy and familiarity with distant others. And yet what forms of care, of compassion, of ethical responsibility are at hand especially for those of us who feel cynical about the possibility of being agents of real social change? How might we intensify the risk-taking of our entrepreneurial times into the openness to radical love?
Let's talk about love where others have said it doesn't belong. Let's insist that we talk about love especially when others tell us it's inappropriate. Let's begin to imagine the radical claim that we might conjure and imagine an age of love out of our dark times.
