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.

Full text of "Harrison Bergeron (& Activity)"
It was tragic, all right, but George and Hazel couldn't think about it very
hard. Hazel had a perfectly average intelligence, which meant she couldn't
think about anything except in short bursts. And George, while his
intelligence was way above normal, had a little mental handicap radio in his
ear. He was required by law to wear it at all times. It was tuned to a
government transmitter. Every twenty seconds or so, the transmitter would
send out some sharp noise to keep people like George from taking unfair
advantage of their brains.

Addicted to Your iPhone? You’re Not Alone - The Atlantic
Feels a little hippie-dippie, but interesting nonetheless.

"Under the auspices of Time Well Spent, Harris is leading a movement to change the fundamentals of software design. He is rallying product designers to adopt a “Hippocratic oath” for software that, he explains, would check the practice of “exposing people’s psychological vulnerabilities” and restore “agency” to users. “There needs to be new ratings, new criteria, new design standards, new certification standards,” he says. “There is a way to design based not on addiction.”"
