Generally safe – or not?

Net-Map Toolbox

Or is it an unsafe nasty place with brief spells of peace and quiet (before another storm)? Do you see the world as a place that is generally safe and pleasant, where every once in a while nasty things happen? Are people in general not to be trusted and just a few exceptions act decent occasionally? Or are most people trying to be decent and nice most of the time, with just a few deviants?

Just because they can?!

So instead of jumping into action, I actually sat down and brainstormed (in my own brain… what a storm) about the question what makes policy makers tick, what gets them to prefer a certain direction over another, what makes them push really hard for their solution. Why do policy makers push for certain decisions?
