Social fears; the easiest fears to conquer.

You really got nothing to lose.

My theory:

Social media and phones and video games and portable video games have made our new generation EVEN MORE socially fearful.

For example, let me consider some 21-year old students I’ve met. None of them can make prolonged eye contact with me, yet they can yell and scream and curse when playing a video game. Odd? No. This is the new sociological fact.

Can we blame people for being socially fearsome?

No. Media and social media is also to blame. For example, all modern news is about fear marketing, fear feeds.
