The Associated Press is reporting
that paranoia is on the rise. A British psychologist is saying that nearly one in four Londoners have paranoid thoughts on a regular basis. Hmmmm. Do you think that Britain's slide toward a surveillance society
has anything to do with it?
Not surprisingly, a similar rise in paranoia has been seen here in the U.S. But perhaps that's because we are living in a post-9/11 world under a government that relies on fear-mongering -- on everything from global terrorism to the economy -- to keep itself in power.
