Be Concerned

Be Concerned
“Fear is powerful,” Obama said. “Telling people that somebody’s out to get you, or somebody took your job, or somebody has it out for you, or is going to change you, or your community, or your way of life — that’s an old story and it has shown itself to be powerful in societies all around the world. It is a deliberate, systematic effort to tap into that part of our brain that carries fear in it.”

Reminds me of the Newman from Seinfeld quote:

“When you control the mail…you control information.”

Holding on to information is a short-term sense of power. Sometimes that’s warranted. When it becomes habitual, it becomes concerning.
