  •  Good job. (5+ / 0-)

    It IS all about fear, and keeping people fearful. A huge example, a non-governmental one, is the nightly news, both local and national. What leads the reports? Shootings, fatal accidents, robberies -- and especially if there's video. I've quit watching - quit a long time ago, in fact, because it really affected my state of mind.

    Of course, there's enough presented here to ratchet up the fear levels, too, so sometimes I take a break from dkos, or limit my involvement to pootie and food diaries, guaranteed to sooth a rattled psyche. ;)

    More seriously, I do thank you for your diary. I agree with your perceptions.

    Being the single intellectual in a village of 1,100 souls ain't much fun, especially when 1,099 of those don't think you're all that smart.--Lucy Marsden
