Our worldview of crime rates

If you were to guess what were your chances of being robbed the last 10 years?

The answer: About 1.2%.

The average guess was, however, 14.5%.

Crime isn’t rising, we just think it is.

And that is the power of media.

It amplifies a voice in our head that the world is in constant turmoil and is on the brink of destruction.

How does this effect our voting or how we give someone the benefit of the doubt? How does this change our posture?

Ignore the loon noises.
