6. There's a lot of truth in what you said...

I hear you and agree.

That said, moving further toward all decisions based on fear (as citizens and as a nation) isn't good. At least having a conversation as to the root causes of the fear seems like a healthy way to proceed.

Without a doubt, corporate media and Big $$ work hard to keep us in a state of fear.

I think we could call the various systems and "complexes" (military industrial, prison industrial, Big Pharma, etc.) Institutionalized Fear.

Yep, we have Institutionalized Fear. So, I'm not blaming anyone for feeling this way, I'm just saying it's not good for anyone.
