The world is safer than it has ever been, Why are we so paranoid?

If you have ever heard a story or seen a movie that depicted childhood anytime at the beginning of the 21st century, you will know that back then, kids were generally ‘kicked out of the house’, they spent all day roaming around the planet visiting God only knows where and all was well as long as they were home by the time the street lights came on. This is no secret and it wasn’t uncommon.

Why then is it, that overall, parents seem to be more protective than ever of their kids?

Perception Isn’t Reality

Well, immediately you would probably say that it’s because the world is so dangerous today. It sure is depicted that way. When the topic comes up, I am immediately flooded with mental images of the gray-haired Caucasian CIA agent that is always on CNN – and which, I can never remember his name – standing with a microphone and police or ambulance lights reflecting off of everything in the background because there was some terrible crime that happened and the victims were some innocent kids.

I immediately think of child predators and serial killer murderers sitting at home on the internet strategically plotting ways to kidnap and harm your children. But what we see on television just isn’t an accurate depiction of the state of any general or localized area – ever, anywhere.

The sooner that we understand their manipulative ways the better off we will be as a society. They pick and choose which stories will be aired or even covered based on whatever political, socio-economic agenda suits their best interest and strikes fear into the masses.

Viral Videos Aren’t Random

I used to think that videos went viral on social media because they were funny or clever. Now, I know better. Videos and memes go viral on social media (which is also MS media) for one reason and one reason only. Because the technocrats of b1g tech decide that they are going to go viral and so they do what they do to manipulate the algorithms and BAM – they have decided what we, as a society en mass, are going to see, think and feel. They decide what we are going to talk about all day at work with coworkers and with clients. They decide what funny political memes are going to monopolize our consciousness.

So the next time you ask the person next to you about the hilarious meme that you saw earlier because you can’t wait to bring it up to someone and discuss it so that you feel like you are in some sort of ‘know’ and deep down you think it is fulfilling some of your inherent human need to be loved and accepted, just remember that you are being controlled. Just like a pawn in a game of chess you have forfeited your free will and sovereignty and are being used and willfully giving up your God-given rights to freedom of thought, freedom of speech, and freedom of action.

The Reality

As it turns out, reported violent crime in the US is down from 729.6 per 100,000 population in 1990 to 366.7 per 100,000 population in 2019. Why then can’t we let out kids ride their bikes all day until the street lights come on? We can. Turns out they are safer riding their bikes now than they would’ve ever been at any other time in recorded human history.

Sheltering your children from a perceived scary threat that doesn’t really exist is akin to sheltering the world from a scary virus that hasn’t actually been proven, ever, to be contagious. But there are harmful long-term psychological effects that will stem from over-bearing over-protection of children. Data suggests that children who are sheltered are not equipped with the tools necessary to cope with even the smallest life problems. Check out this article on the consequences of over protecting your children.

The Role Guns Play

So while I was having this conversation with a close friend of mine he mentioned a correlation or lack thereof as far as crime going down and how that relates to the number of people who purchase and own guns. I thought it would be interesting to find out. Once I was able to weed through all of the information about how gun sales are breaking records now since 2020, I was able to find this document. Without making charts and running algorithms, my conclusion is this…

Companies have been manufacturing more and more guns since 1986, while sales have had different peaks at different times. We weren’t necessarily on a steady incline with gun commerce in the US but based on my analysis, there doesn’t seem to be any correlation between gun sales or gun ownership and reported crime in the US. As reported crime has been on a steady decline and gun sales gave moved more in a volatile incline.
