Daily Dig for  November 6

Xenophobia is the opposite of hospitality. It means “fear of the stranger.” It’s in the very air we breathe: it’s built into our mortgage contracts, our Constitution, our foreign policy, our immigration system, and the speeches that elect our politicians. The fear of the other is so strong and so systemic that it might take something more than a good dinner party to upend it.
