What's Actually Scary

Government: Climate change is real and we need to work on it.
Public: Nah, I like my humvee.

Government: Please vaccinate your children to help stop the spread of things like measles and whooping cough.
Public: Nah, I read this one article by a discredited doctor that says vaccines cause autism. My kid can take any disease that comes his way.

Government: Stop freaking out about Ebola.
Public: WE'RE ALL GONNA DIE!!! PANIC PANIC DIIIIIIIIIIEEEEE I TELL YOU!


Me: You know what's actually scary?   MASS HYSTERIA.

Addendum:  If your only source for "facts" is "naturalnews.com" you should just go lock yourself in your basement in shame.

so very true. the ability for the populace to panic is disheartening. And the news media franchise THRIVES on it, and so it constantly FEEDS into it.
