We live in a society driven by fear, to the point where it
permeates through our actions. We allow our fear of the
‘unknown’, the ‘other’, to keep us from forming a sense of
empathy, to forming greater understandings of the human condition.
Fear mongering is a powerful political tool, preying upon our instinct
to protect ourselves in order to persuade. In the past year, we have
witnessed the development of a platform that actively disarms
the rights of women, minority groups, LGBTQI individuals, and
immigrants. A platform that thrives off of perceived threat. The only
true threat to our society is the inability to accept. We may all be
different, but we connect through human experiences that transcend
borders, gender, race, and faith. The compassionate individual seeks
to empathize, while the fearful individual seeks to judge.
We at FUSE Magazine choose to embrace love. We celebrate the
expression of sexuality not only as a form of beauty, but a means of
empowerment. We encourage artistic liberty as an exploration of the
human experience. We invite you to join us in liberating ourselves
from fear, in order to see the love that lives around us.
