Worried Economists and Other Professional Worriers
"Some economists worry that..." - headline on NPR's news site. What they were worried about is immaterial, if they were not worried, other economists would be worried about that.
Many people in the news business are the same way. They are earnestly looking for something they can categorize as disturbing. They are paid to disturb us.
And there are politicians that run their political business the same way, always on the search for something the other party leaders said or didn't say, did or didn't do, that can be presented as dumb or malicious. Even some preachers operate like that. For politicians and news people it is dishonest and is contrary to the best interests of society. For religious leaders it goes against the expressed, written will of God. He wants us to love each other, not to look for ways to tear each other down. See John 13:35.
