Alarmism

Given the vast resources devoted to projecting the national security state of mind, counseling sobriety is an asymmetric conflict, but even those opposed to the war mindset tend to hyperventilate. Much like the war on drugs, war on terror, war on you name it alarmism, the authorized “experts” of the moral theatrics industry are so insular they unavoidably breathe their own exhaust. This not only perpetuates the lucrative game, it also denies space to more thoughtful and effective responses.

Given the devotion of Congress to making things worse, we should probably plan on developing a network of first responders to limit the psychic damage caused by media inflammation of such expert warnings.
