Fear culture

As we move into this long election lead-up, 'Fear' of one sort or another will be used as a tactic. Whether it is fear of 'losing one's job', fear of minorities, fear of drug cultures, fear of criminals, is not important. What is important is the truth about those same issues and whether the 'fear' is truly warranted.   Getting to the truth is not always easy but examining both sides of an issue will provide a balance and base on which to make decisions.

Michael Moore provides food for thought and some great examples of critical thinking on the issue of 'gun culture'.
