I have often wondered where the branch of psychology is that begins to ask the questions of why something is becoming so pervasive and so rampant like anxiety instead of finding ways of stopping it. Am I the only person who asks such questions? I am starting to believe that is the case. Social phobias, hikikomori, agoraphobia ... these are growing in number all over the world ... what drives people to this point? If fear is biological .. then that means it's an aspect of our truest and deepest nature. What is in our nature that is triggering these root "survival instincts" to now cripple us? Nothing in nature happens for no reason. Perhaps there is more wisdom to be found in why it's happening more and more frequently than to discuss finding ways of controlling it. This is something I have dedicated a lot of time and study to ... I believe strongly that others should as well.
