Denmark seems like a safe little corner of the world; there's not much to be afraid of in Denmark. Tax-funded social programs make it unlikely you’ll go hungry or homeless, as long as you have that little yellow social service card that shows you're here legally. Your medical care and education is paid for by taxes – yours or somebody else’s. Even if you lose your job – and it’s very easy in Denmark for companies to get rid of workers they don’t want – there is the social safety net to catch you. I’ve often thought that the social safety net is one of the reasons Danes have so little interest in religion. When there’s so little to worry about, there’s not much to pray for. Yet Denmark is not immune from the world’s bigger fears – war, crime, climate change and terrorism.
