“People have a general tendency to believe information about dangers more than they believe information about benefits…This is an understandable pattern given that the costs of encountering dangers will often be higher than the costs of taking unnecessary precautions.”

“Social conservatives see safety in the status quo, while liberals see opportunity in change,” [Thus, conservatives see danger in change.]
