Overview

Today, we live in a 'culture of open options.' We have more employment opportunities than ever before, we can live more or less anywhere we want in the world, and through dating apps, we have an endless array of potential partners.

Yet there is a downside to all this choice: the multitude of available options has damaged our lives and our society by turning us into commitment-phobes. Deep relationships and strong communities require long-term commitment, which we are now too scared to give.

Pete Davis is a writer and founder of the civil society group Democracy Policy Network. In Dedicated he outlines the damage caused by our commitment phobia, gives us tips on becoming more committed individuals, and presents a vision for a more committed society.

Favorite Quote

"We do something holy in those few extraordinary moments when we make commitments. And we do something holy in those countless ordinary moments when we keep them … It is noble to give your life to a cause – but it is even nobler to give your daily life to it."
