#16A CULTURE OF FEAR

I view society, to some extent, as threatening my security and well-being—so I take precautions to minimize risks.  I often ask “Will someone hurt me if I do this?” Far from wanting to interact with and trust them, I generally fear strangers, especially those who seem clearly different.  I lock the door to my house at night. I own a gun to protect myself and loved ones should the need arise.  I try to align myself with those who have power.  I believe those who break laws should expect harsh punishment—especially if they are poor or powerless.

Note: With version 4.0, this theme is new to the Project Worldview theme structure in March, 2019.
