The state encourages the media promotion of boogeymen-- in the 1970s serial killers, today pedophiles and etc--
because it makes the populace demand increased state control in their private lives, which is the precisely the natural single goal of any state. The state and the media effect this encouragement by pretending not to know of the boogeyman's nonexistence. Says a Congressman: "you mean there's an epidemic of baby rapers out there? Wait-- did you say rapers or rappers? The hell you say! Elect me, I'll make sure we buy thousands of cameras from my supporters at Nikon to monitor our streets, we're going to need tech support so let's bring in Google...." None of this is consciously planned in advance, it doesn't have to be, it is in the nature of things: individual selfishness always finds a way, and that way leads to indoor recess for all of us. -- The Last Psychiatrist: Or, You Could Just Nuke The Bitch
