    It's really all about emotion.  

    I see this a lot in the very different context of HIV transmission.  People's attitudes and actions are not determined by actual risk.  They make decisions based on emotion, with sometimes unhappy consequences.

      Most people play Russian roulette daily... with a two-shooter!

      On the other hand, people convey "fear" upon something that is safer than their logic process.

      We hate being lied to... and yet, we lie to ourselves and believe our own lies!

      Enagaged activism wins elections. 100 million words on liberal/progressive websites gets beat by one new GOP voter casting their vote.
