There's no shortage of negative issues in modern life; be it political, economic or social. This blog has explored how vested interests manipulate the presence of these issues for gain. Their philosophy being that scared people are much easier to control. Naturally good news would not be in their interest, therefore, it takes work to maintain an optimistic view of life in general.
