When the mind decides to push selfishly for something which benefits us but harms other people our own heart's cries are ignored. Such insensitive talk and action are especially prominent now that elections are around the corner. Politicians with well-funded access to media speak in a way which raises anxiety levels to the maximum. They create a sense of panic so that people will believe them to be true helpers. 

People will believe that a change in political parties will magically create new jobs and power up the bad economy. They are not calm enough to examine specific policies and their relationship to a worldwide global recession. The media-savvy politicians make promises without substance and the agitated viewers swallow the promises.
