Spanning the globe for insights into human behavior and persuasion.




Utah legislator John Dougall's post on the opponents of Utah's porn legislation used a term I hadn't heard of before--FUD, or fear uncertainty and doubt. There's even a wikipedia article on it (but, with more than half a million articles, wikipedia covers just about everything, doesn't it?). No doubt about it: fear motivates, especially, for Americans, fear of government interference.

UPDATE: Broken link fixed. Thanks, Michael, for the heads up.

The link to John Dougall's post is broken.
