1. Agree that latent fear in the general public has increased.

I place the bulk of blame squarely on the Republican Party here, and other right-wing factions world-wide.

This is clearly caused by divide and conquer rhetoric in right-wing media tainted with machoism, racism, xenophobia and misguided religious dogma driven by nefarious plutocrats that want to control every aspect of our lives.

Strange that in reality, we have far less to really fear than most nations in the world. Most of our fear is internally created and self-inflicted, including that of those behind most mass shootings.

Fear begats fear, and worsening fear always creates or worsens mental illness in any population.
