Taleb is also right to point out that many things require some kind of stress or irregularity to function well, such as our bodies. If the environment is too disinfected, we lose the ability to resist infection. Vaccines introduce a little of what is harmful to build resistance to disease.

Of course, one way to avoid that would be to live in a world where people are accustomed to their children dying young. Taleb is deeply and depressingly nostalgic for the virtues of the ancients, with their stoicism and tolerance for suffering.

Antifragile is not all bad: it has flashes of wit and insight. Taleb says the least antifragile state in the world at the moment is Saudi Arabia, a plausible claim though one it would be nice to see argued out.
