Why this site

The word “safe” in English etymology has its most recent (13th century) historical ties to the Latin “salvus” which means “unharmed.” This, in turn, traces quite naturally to the prevalent notion that “to be safe” means we must be protected from harm. This, unavoidably, invites consideration of what constitutes harm.
