Have you noticed how the media plays up any threat to the community by feeding fear and panic?
This is done deliberately in order to create alarm in the community.
It is done nationally in relation to crime and internationally in relation to terrorism or nuclear threats.
The reason for this is that they can then present their election candidate (the conservative candidate) as the only one who is strong enough to defeat the threat.
This will be someone with a national policy of law and order and an international policy of military intervention.
This is why the right wing media romanticizes the military.
Quite apart from the fact that they believe that the military is there to protect their wealth like the police.
So be wary of any attempt to overplay the threat of crime or terrorism or nuclear attack.
It is an attempt to control you and win your vote.
