I finally saw Bowling for Columbine

In Bowling for Columbine one of the main points was that fearmongering is a major source of social unrest, and all that that implies.

I thought it would be interesting to create a list of all the things that the media tells you to be afraid of, and then a list of what I think you should fear.

On the first list, here are a few things I can think of off the top of my head.
