The key is unemotional dot connecting. It's just information. It becomes negative or positive through resonance with foundational belief systems that all ready reside in the mind/s of the receivers.
We see all kinds of reactions to information. One can look at it and interpret it and see how it fits or doesn't with their current world view. Once can examine it openly. Once can categorically dismiss it. One can mock it. One can try and have the information sharing shut down, etc, etc.
This says much about the filters in the receiver more than it does the information itself. We see the "mirror" very much at play when we examine reactions to information being shared.
If information had been freely examined, such as the rise of power in nazi germany, lives would have been saved. People tend not to want to look at the darker side of life and thus become victims of the very things they mask out by fear(no matter what labels one uses to hid their fear.
Information sharing isn't fear mongering. It is just information. The fear mongering aspect actually comes to light from the receiving side of the information. By calling it "fear mongering," suggests that it must be stimulating fear in the message receiver so that label then gets attached. Stimulus-response-label
Whistling in the dark as a response to information flow in reality is not an optimal. In other words, ignorance is NOT bliss.
