In the present climate, I suspect you are speaking of population fear.

A cynic, or just a sceptic, might say that's exactly what the 'powers that be' want. Paralysis. Control.

The 'powers that be' may well not be those who are identifiable and in office.

But you make a good point.

Being a DC area resident, a certain watchfulness is indicated as we approach the ten year anniversary of 9/11. But fear is too often too easy to manipulate.
