  •  "Safety" is exactly what it is. (4+ / 0-)

    It over-rides the ups and downs and is the comforting mood in the background (particularly in contrast to the chaotic and reckless Bush years). Lately, I hear that word used a lot:  "I feel safe."

    I should point out that half of people in the US are seeking a sense of safety that they know that Mitt Romney will bring. For them, the Obama presidency is out of control and dangerous. It has made them extremely anxious.

    The same circumstances bring emotional responses of profound polarity to Americans.

    Is that a natural thing among groups of humans? Or is it manufactured? Why?
