Fear Substitution

Concept: we fear things we shouldn’t, as a substitute for the things we really fear, yet cannot easily avoid.

Fear substitution is real.

People fear spiders that have never done them harm, and yet have no fear of driving on a road despite in being a high chance for dying young.

Likewise terrorism has a very tiny chance of affecting your life, yet you may fret over it.

The media knows this, and they are your accomplice.

Knowing what you truly fear and dealing with it is the preferred way of being. Instead of substituting it with something less relevant.

I think…

Because it is often thought that ignorant people lead more content lives…
