    its primeval things that move people. its difficult to not be touched by such things as organized whipped up fear. It is now pervasive because much of it is organized in a decentralised way for small self serving objectives, but still adding up to an overall force on peoples minds.

    I come from a time (and place) where this was not so, and I have spent most of the last ten to fifteen years simply trying to refuse letting myself be carried along in this stream of forced emotive reaction. until today I see no way how we can overcome this beast. It can really sink our societies (and its happening here in Europe no less than over at your place; in different ways, but still the same processes). I dont know if this will be overcome. Not am very optimistic I must say.
