Survey: You’ll Never Guess What Americans Are Most Afraid Of

fearsBy Melissa Dykes

Out of 88 potential horrors this batch of 1,500+ Americans were asked to rank in regard to their personal level of fear in 2015, you’ll never guess what the number one thing people are most afraid of in this country…

Or perhaps you will.

Americans are more afraid of their own corrupt government than ANYTHING AND EVERYTHING ELSE including death, rape, murder, nuclear war, pandemics, terrorism, zombies, and even clowns.

What an amazingly sad statement on modern America and the times we are living in.

The survey can be found here.

Americans’ Deepest Fears

Are Americans today afraid of criminals with guns or a government that would seek to disarm its citizens?

The impositions of the system now rank higher among worry than hyped factors like terrorism – with distrust at very high levels among citizens and consumers alike. People are becoming disconnected from the wealth and prosperity they once knew, and instead are facing a collapsing system that wishes to loot from its populace as the ship goes down.

Dearly held rights in the American tradition are under threat today of vanishing, of being upended by a machine with secret designs.

Corporate schemers, conniving bankers and corrupt government insiders are driving perpetual wars, a damaged economy, disappearing jobs and diminishing chances of achieving the American dream.

    Not surprising.

    The biggest fear should be the tons of radioactivity both ionizing and non-ionizing that is spewed onto you 24/7 by the murderers that you gleefully elect each term and the corporations that you pay to for this great dis-service. The cycle of voting for the best prison warden into office has to end in order for meaningful progress to begin. Also the sale and development of appropriate technologies has to be regulated by people with compassion not collectors of paychecks.

    The fear of communism,socialism and Muslim invaders. All other things will fall into line once we stand up for our freedoms and recoup our beloved land The United States of America

    What americans are most afraid of is reality itself. If it were not for such cowardice there would not be any tyrannical and criminal government that is out of control and oppressive towards it’s own citizens.

      Well said. And, its the same here in Australia. You can be arrested and fined for just about anything here. No vaccination? No money! Its a disgrace and im the one being laughed at when i speak up. For people like us, isolation is the tool used to bash us with. Americans need to realise, too, that this is a global thing. We are all in this together, not just the USA! Our government are puppets to the same masters as your lot…

        Most Australians are dopes. Speaking to dopes and then having them laugh at you is meaningless. Putting it another way, imagine a herd of cattle laughing at you? Do you care? All you should think about is which one will be tonight’s dinner and what sauce you should use. How do I know all this? I’m Australian.

          Cheers, Dickie!

    I’m not worried about the corruption – what concerns me is how to throw out the dirt.
    But number 2 is a huge concern – the internet of things. I’m sure the chips are being made w/ snitch capabilities, which the outlaws in the east being into voyeurism and perversion.
