Fear, Intended & Actual

The first, is unsubstantiated.  Bearded men in Pashtunistan are not threatening me, or my family, here in the US.  Illegal aliens aren't threatening me either, even though I live in a border state whose governor has started a campaign to solicit private donations to build a border wall.  The second row, is substantiated, as paramilitary organizations continue to grow unchecked, police powers expand, and the impotent parties of our plural democracy grow rich & powerful & beholden to special interests from all the donations given to them by billionaires and incorporated citizens.
