Two pieces well worth the time to read if you like food with your thought:
Carpe K-9 – “Don’t Blame the Dog!”:
Why are we not allowed to blame the dog, again? When dogs bite, and especially when they bite aggressively, with purpose to maim or worse, it is ALWAYS because the owners “did something wrong”?
KC Dog Blog – Creating Fear in the Media and Politics:
[Daniel] Gardner then goes on and mentions his book, the Science of Fear, which is a GREAT book about the media, businesses and politicians fear-mongering their way into gaining readers, viewers, sales and votes. If we have something to fear, we are more likely to pay/vote for someone to “fix” this problem for us. With nothing to fear, there is nothing to fix, and thus, we don’t buy, or vote for change, or whatever it is they want us to do.
Thought, consider yourself provoked.
