the fear is necessary
People who read a lot of internet news might feel like they're in danger; people living in these areas actually live and experience daily danger. But just as Trump isn't concerned about facts, he's not concerned about that experience. The fear is necessary; it, along with the refusal to believe that the world has and will continue to change, is his power source. Eliminate it, and there'd be no need for him.

One of the paper’s authors, Dr Michal Kosinski, says his intent is to sound the alarm about the dangers of AI, and warns that facial recognition will soon be able to identify not only someone’s sexual orientation, but their political views, criminality, and even their IQ.

The Brainless Slime That Can Learn By Fusing - The Atlantic
Slime mold is so cool. The experiment that really kills me is the one where they lay out bits of food to represent major cities on a map, and then the slime mold basically figures out the interstate/rail patterns that we actually built.
