The Risk of Demanding No Risk: The Hypocrisy of Justifiable Principles
by Jane Wiesner

Community Development in a 'Global Risk Society' Conference, 20th April 2006

This paper questions the feasibility of global risk management, suggesting its foundations are built on a prophecy of doom; a dark conditioning created by fear. It argues that risk management requires the justification of principles, principles that are not only contingent on subjective judgement but perpetuate and cultivate absolutist beliefs. Hence, the staunch application of risk management systems presents an ethical concern, one that poses a threat to human rights. Consequently, under the guise of diminishing risk and reducing hazard, risk management systems yield the greatest risk of all—the risk of sacrificing freedom.

This paper explores the struggle of virtue pitted against a technological and global environment. It recognises virtue as problematic in terms of its demands—virtue inevitably requires some measure of sacrifice and sacrifice, by nature, involves the relinquishment of desire.
