  • A perciveed terrorist threat by an ill-informed community results in great paranoia

    This episode does a good job of highlighting how in today sociaty when people are leaving in fear can easily be turned into witch hunt. It shows how reason seems to be trumped by fear and how easy it is to convince poeple into becoming monsters. As the narrator says at the end when we dont find the enemy we make one ourselves in order to fill like we have a level of control over things, though i believe this to be true this episode how ever comes up shot in its conclusion because in the end we never know who the real monster is, whether it is the military for not stoping the situation in time or the community for act out of paranoia
